Abstract: 
There is a two-hundred-year interval between the appearance of Ferdowsi’s initial manuscripts of Shahnameh and his death. The manuscripts contain between 48000 and over 60000 lines and have led to much debate among Ferdowsi scholars. The debates are over which lines and stories are authentic and which were added later for various reasons. One reason for such additions is political concerns. Many scholars claim that the lines written in praise of Mahmoud Ghaznavi are not authentic. One instance of such praise is a dream narrated by Ferdowsi at the beginning of the story of Gashtasb. In the dream, much of which is in praise of Mahmoud Ghaznavi, Daghighi asks Ferdowsi to include his poems in Shahnameh. Although the dream exists in all versions of Shahnameh, there are hints in its text that render its authenticity questionable. This article is a study of the authenticity of this dream through an analysis of its content.
