This paper converses about the narrations, which are spread about Mir. Some of the chronicles are true and are true to Mir's poetic accoutrements, but because of the blind acceptance of many chronicles, the exact part of his word has disappeared from our eyes. The reason for this is that the Mir who is the real Mir could not appear before us. It was not the case that Mir's dominance was accepted by later people but was accepted by the people of his own epoch, nonetheless their basis was the same points that were considered during the publication of his selected Gazals. The paper therefore attempts to revisit four such basic assumptions: low and high of his poetic couplets, pessimism, general tone, and selection of Mir, in order to know the facts.
