Shahnameh: Iranian Identity

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Every nation has a book that represents the personality of that nation. For example: the British people have the works of Shakespeare, the Greeks have the Iliad and the Odyssey, the Italians have The Divine Comedy by Dante, and we have the Shahnameh.

The Shahnameh not only contains the history of Iran but is also a symbol of our national character that should be used by Iranians as a guideline.
Knowledge of the Shahnameh leads to self-knowledge, without which we will be unable to choose the right path.

The young generation does not have the patience to scrutinize the Shahnameh for new analysis and all studies date back to past decades… This generation ignores all things from the past. To solve the problem, special institutes undertaking research on the Shahnameh should be set up to train students on the proper methods of studying the Shahnameh and Ferdowsi.
