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. For orders visit: For more information visit:
