A Comparative Study of Fereydoon’s Tale as Narrated by the Masarms
Fereydoon is the fifth famous Kiani king whose stories are included in most part of ferdowsi’s Shahnameh. In Shahnameh, the number of people whose lives to be fully attended to is very limited. One of these personalities is Fereydoon. The adventures of Fereydoon have extensively pervaded into ordinary people’s lives. One of such narrations is one narrated by one of the narrators of Masarm village named “the beautiful orient”, located in Shiraz’s south west at a distance of forty kilometers. The author, first, with a field method, has registered the narration and, then, has attended to its comparative analysis with Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh narration. The findings of the study show that the narrators have attempted to domesticate the story for accepting the story amongst the people. In other words, this story bears little resemblance to that of Shahnameh’s narrations except very few lines made completely different. The investigation of this story shows that the narrators, in addition to Shahnameh’s narration, have paid meticulous attention to local elements and folk beliefs, religious narrations and old myths. In general, it can be said that the differences of the two narrations can be investigated in three sections: events, personalities and the places of such events.
