The selected adventures of Persia’s Hercules, from Iran’s great national epic No understand ing of world mythology is complete without acquaintance with Rostam, Iran’s most celebrated mythological hero. According to the Shahnameh (the tenth-century Book of Kings), this titan, magnificent in strength and courage, bestrode Persia for 500 years. While he often served fickle kings—undergoing many trials of combat, cunning, and endurance—he was never their servant and owed allegiance only to his nation’s greater good. Anyone interested in folklore, world literature, or Iranian culture will find Rostamboth a rousing and illuminating read.

Abolqasem Ferdowsi(9401020) is the preeminent poet in the Persian language and one of the greatest poets of his time in any language. Dick Davisis the premier translator of Persian poetry at work today. Azar Nafisiis the author of the bestselling Reading Lolita in Tehran.

Dick Davis is an Englishman who has lived for most of his adult life outside his own country - in Greece, Italy, Iran and the United States. He is currently a professor of Persian at Ohio State University in Columbus.
