Title: Signs of Longing and Belonging in the "Shâhnamâ" Tale of Rustam and Suhrâb
Authors: Omidsalar, Mahmoud
Issue Date: 1997
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: Suhrâb's interrogation of Hujîr in the Rustam and Suhrâb episode of the "Shâhnâma" is considered in terms of its narrative logic. The semiotic significance of the name Hujîr, and the organizational signification of the elements of the story as a whole are discussed. The paper seeks to provide evidence that the "Shâhnâma" is not a collection of unrelated epic tales haphazardly thrown together, but rather a work of art, possessed of a consciously constructed narrative logic that is detectable on every level of literary analysis.
