This piece is the fourth 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, a complete editorship and explanation starts from the beginning of the story of the descent of Siavash to the story of Ikvan Div. 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, the historical transformation of language is focused on. In the part on etymology the origin and history of words are studied and their Pahlavid form is more or less presented.

There is explanation on the verses, a glossary of words, a glossary of etymologies, a list of abbreviations and an index at the back of the book.
