Abstract: 

In this paper, the author explores the concept of human nature as viewed by Shakespeare and Ferdowsi by reflecting on the destiny of the protagonists of Macbeth and Bahram Choubineh. The two works bear many similarities: they were both written by authors who are among the greatest literary creators in the world; the material for both stories was taken from history but was changed for artistic purposes; both works were written in the mature years of the lives of their authors; both works depict the confrontation of the human soul with power. Unlike Macbeth, Bahram Choubineh is not a tragedy, but it does have rich tragic elements. The author compares the two stories in terms of the events and the characters, commenting on the strengths and weak points of each as reflected in the mirror of the other.
