Poetics and Politics of Iran's National Epic, the Sh?Hn?Meh Hardback
Part of the Literatures and Cultures of the Islamic World series
This book considers some of the Western interpretations of The Shahnameh - Iran's national epic, and argues that these interpretations are not only methodologically flawed, but are also more revealing of Western concerns and anxieties about Iran than they are about the Shahnameh.
