Bahman-nāme, a late 5th-century (A.H.) or early 6th-century (A.H.) epic poem, is one of those significant poems that used the Shāh-nāme as a model. This story was composed by Īrānshāh in four parts. The first part recounts the adventures of Bahman, son of Esfandīār, who, at the behest of Rostam, marries Katāyūn, 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 Rāmin and Bahman-nāme, the author, in this study, is trying to show that Īrānshāh, in writing his book, not only benefited from Vis and Rāmin 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.
