The book is the most extensive rendering into English couplets of the great Epic Shah Namah in Persian language by the immortal poet, Fardusi.The plan adopted has been that of taking the introduction, with a portion of the history of the earliest kings of Persia in the mythical and pre-historic ages, and following these with prose translations of the reigns of the best-known monarchs and with various celebrated episodes, such as that of the fight of the hero Rustam and his son Suhrab, and from those epochs down to that of Yazdagird., about A.H. 411 (A.D. 1020), during the period of the history of Persia spanning more than 3500 years. Between these there has been inserted an epitome of the history of the intervening periods in prose, so that the whole conveys a full impression of the entire poem.This is the most faithful rendering in its adherence to the original. The uncompromising fidelity and the method followed by the translator will surely enable the readers to master the peculiarities and intricacies of the original through the medium of translation. Printed Pages: 568.
