Abstract: 

Bahman-name, a late 5th-century (A.H.) or early 6th-century (A.H.) epic poem is one of those significant poems that used the Shah-name as a model. This story was composed by Iranshah in four parts. The first part recounts the adventures of Bahman, son of Esfandiar, who, at the behest of Rostam, marries Katayūn, the daughter of the king of Kashmir. Although generally this poem belongs to the epic genre, the first part is more lyrical in nature than heroic. In fact this part comes close to being a distinct love story. By comparing the narratives of Vis and Ramin and Bahman-name, the author, in this study, is trying to show that Iranshah, in writing his book, not only benefited from Vis and Ramin as a model, but he also used this book for depiction of scenes, developing the characters, selecting stories and themes, types of events, styles of narrative, parables.
