The definitive translation by Dick Davis of the great national epic of Iran—now newly revised and expanded to be the most complete English-language edition Dick Davis—“our pre-eminent translator from the Persian” (The Washington Post)—has revised and expanded his acclaimed translation of Ferdowsi’s masterpiece, adding more than 100 pages of newly translated text. Davis’s elegant combination of prose and verse allows the poetry of the Shahnameh to sing its own tales directly, interspersed sparingly with clearly marked explanations to ease along modern readers. Originally composed for the Samanid princes of Khorasan in the tenth century, the Shahnameh is among the greatest works of world literature. This prodigious narrative tells the story of pre-Islamic Persia, from the mythical creation of the world and the dawn of Persian civilization through the seventh-century Arab conquest. The stories of the Shahnameh are deeply embedded in Persian culture and beyond, as attested by their appearance in such works as The Kite Runner and the love poems of Rumi and Hafez. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

The Shahnameh, an epic poem recounting the foundation of Iran across mythical, heroic, and historical ages, is the beating heart of Persian literature and culture. Composed by Abu al-Qasem Ferdowsi over a thirty-year period and completed in the year 1010, the epic has entertained generations of readers and profoundly shaped Persian culture, society, and politics. For a millennium, Iranian and Persian-speaking people around the globe have read, memorized, discussed, performed, adapted, and loved the poem. In this book, Hamid Dabashi brings the Shahnameh to renewed global attention, encapsulating a lifetime of learning and teaching the Persian epic for a new generation of readers. Dabashi insightfully traces the epic’s history, authorship, poetic significance, complicated legacy of political uses and abuses, and enduring significance in colonial and postcolonial contexts. In addition to explaining and celebrating what makes the Shahnameh such a distinctive literary work, he also considers the poem in the context of other epics, such as the Aeneid and the Odyssey, and critical debates about the concept of world literature. Arguing that Ferdowsi’s epic and its reception broached this idea long before nineteenth-century Western literary criticism, Dabashi makes a powerful case that we need to rethink the very notion of “world literature” in light of his reading of the Persian epic.

Summary of Shahnameh in Persian Prose has a Persian title: Passionate Words of Ferdowsi. This 100,000-word book is a summary of 60,000 poems, which took Ferdowsi 35 years to write and is considered the world’s greatest epic, written 1000 years ago. Shahnameh, known to English literary, as “Epic of Kings” is more than seven times the length of Homer’s Iliad. Its rhyming couplets describe the history of Iranian Kings from the creation of Mankind to the Moslem Conquest. Its main theme is an expression of patriotic Iranian pride and glory. One comparison to Shahnameh in western culture is the Kalevala, Epic of Finland, which is often compared to the Epics of Homer. The Kavelala is credited with some the inspiration for the national awakening that ultimately led to Finland’s independence from Russia in 1917.

The selected adventures of Persia's Hercules, from Iran's great national epic No understanding of world mythology is complete without acquaintance with Rostam, Iran's most celebrated mythological hero. According to the Shahnameh (the tenth-century Book of Kings), this titan, magnificent in strength and courage, bestrode Persia for 500 years. While he often served fickle kings - undergoing many trials of combat, cunning, and endurance - he was never their servant and owed allegiance only to his nation's greater good. Anyone interested in folklore, world literature, or Iranian culture will find Rostam both a rousing and illuminating read.

Aus der geistigen Erbmasse der römischen Spätantike entstanden zwei Religionssysteme: das kaiserzeitliche Christentum und der Islam. Beide haben ihre spezifischen Probleme mit der Rezeption des vorgefundenen "Wissens der Alten" und mit den weltlich umtriebigen τέχναί/artes. Beide Religionssysteme bilden spezifische atechnische Attraktionsbereiche: Diese könnten wir in der christlichen Tradition mit dem augustinischen Terminus "civitas dei" charakterisieren (Kapitel V). Die aktuelle Diskussion zeigt, dass die wichtigsten Ereignisse und Daten der muslimischen Geschichte selbst unter den Gebildeten offensichtlich wenig bekannt sind. So brauchen wir, bevor wir die "Einstellungen zu den artes" untersuchen, einen differenzierenden Blick für die bedeutendsten Normen und Strömungen in der muslimischen Geisteswelt. Die Auseinandersetzung mit der geistigen Erbmasse der Antike hat von den drei Zweigen der artes die Wissenschaften und die Philosophie ganz anders erfasst als die produktiven Techniken und die künstlerische Gestaltung. Leitend war das Bild von der Urgemeinde.

Shahnameh is a lengthy epic poem which vividly intertwines the mythical and historical history of Persia, thereby enchanting and impressing readers for many centuries. Originally composed by Abolqasem Ferdowsi in the 10th century, the Shahnameh enjoys the distinction of being the longest epic poem by a single author in existence. The verses took Ferdowsi over three decades to complete. Although it draws heavily from established mythology and the historical archives of Persia, Ferdowsi also imbues the poem's story with his own vivid inventions and plot devices. The entire poem is intended as a history of Persia from the earliest times until the Islamic Conquest of the country, which occurred about 350 years before Ferdowsi composed his epic. The verses proceed chronologically, beginning with the creation of the Earth, through the establishment of Zoroastrianism as the first monotheistic faith in the region, with the principle characters being various great generals and rulers.

Iran's national epic, the Shahnameh of Ferdowsi, has traditionally been regarded by both Persians and Westerners as a poem celebrating the the central role of monarchy in Persian history. In this groundbreaking book, Dick Davis argues that the poem is far more than a patriotic chronicle of kingly deeds. Rather, it is a subtle and highly ambiguous discussion of authority, and far from being a celebration of monarchy, its most famous episodes and heroes amount to a radical critique of the institution. Davis demonstrates that the public world of kingly authority is shadowed in the poem by a series of tragic father-son relationships, and that in both the royal and familial spheres, authority figures are invariably presented as morally inferior to those whom they govern. The Shahnameh's complex aesthetic structure and its tragic resolution of problems of authority and hierarchy make it an artistic artifact able to take its rightful place beside the major masterpieces of world literature.

Das Heldenepos Schahname befasst sich mit der Geschichte des antiken Persien vor der islamischen Eroberung. Es beginnt mit der Erschaffung der Welt und beschreibt die Entwicklung der Zivilisation. Das Werk ist nicht exakt chronologisch aufgebaut, führt den Leser aber von der Vergangenheit in die Gegenwart. Einige der literarischen Figuren leben für mehrere hundert Jahre, die meisten erleben nur ein Menschenalter. Schahs und Helden kommen und gehen, das einzige was bleibt, ist Persien. Sonnenaufgang und Sonnenuntergang, von denen keiner dem anderen gleicht, beschreiben das Vergehen der Zeit. Das Schahme ist in 62 Sagen bestehend aus 990 Kapiteln mit nahezu 60.000 Versen gegliedert. Hauptfigur ist der mythische Held Rostam, Prinz von Zabulistan, der bei vielen Schlachten die Grenzen des antiken Iran gegen seine Feinde verteidigt. Das Schahname ist nicht nur ein beeindruckendes Denkmal der persischen Dichtkunst sondern auch ein Stück Geschichtsschreibung, da Ferdosi in seinem Werk wiedergibt, was er und seine Zeitgenossen als die Geschichte Irans betrachteten. Friedrich Rückert hat das Werk Ferdosis in geradezu genialer Weise in Verse gefasst. In Band 1 werden die Könige des mythischen Zeitalters behandelt. In den nachfolgenden Bänden werden die Könige des heroischen und historischen Zeitalters dargestellt.
