This piece is the second book of a ten volume work which covers the issues of editorship and Explanation of Shahnameh from its early versions to its culmination. In this volume, editorship and explanation starts from the beginning of the kingship of Nozar to the end of the story of Rustam and Sohrab, which includes the kingship of Nozar, Tahmeseb, Keiqobad, Keikavoos, and the story of Rustam and Sohrab. To discuss and explain the verses and the stories, different views such as lexicology, etymology morphology, mythology, symbology, stylistics and aesthetics are employed. In the part on aesthetics the verses are studied from three perspectives of rhetoric, eloquence and semantics. In the part on stylistics, historical transformation of language is focused on. In the part on etymology the origin and history of words are studied and their Pahlavi form is more or less presented. There is also a study of verses and words through recognition of faked versions. There is explanation on the verses, culture and words, a glossary of etymologies and an index at the back of the book.
