Abstract:   (1711 Views)
Asadi's Shahname, Zarrin-Ghaba-Nameh, is an epic poem (epopee) with a total of 23,133 lines. It was reprinted in 2014 based on Sajjad Aydanlou’s corrections and his research project named Epic Literature and Research Collection. The core plot of this poem is similar to the plots of the stories in the traditional dramatic story telling (Naqqali) with narratives about several different corps and battalions fighting against one another, each belonging to one of Rustam’s sons and descendants, who are occasionally fighting against Rustam himself as well. However, the main distinction between this poem and others is the presence of Zarrin-Ghaba, son of Jahangir and the grandson of Rustam. This new character has added a new army front to the plot of the long-standing narrative, which is the reason why Aydanlou suggests Zarrin-Ghaba-Nameh as a suitable title for the epic; otherwise, the main adventures of this epic do not revolve around this character. The present article, following some preliminary notes on the name and content of this epic poem, brings up suggestions for corrections in some of the poems lines.
