The Iranian epic, the Shahnameh, contains the history and stories of prehistoric and historic Iran with all their greatness and pettiness, romance and tragedies, heroes and villains, glory and shame.

The Shahnameh ranks among the greatest epics of the world along with the Iliad and Odyssey of the West and the Ramayana and Mahabharata in the East.Read More
