Description:

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.
