This piece is the ninth 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 Khosrow Parviz to Yazd Guerd which includes the kingship of Khosrow Parviz, Bahram Chubineh, Qobad Parviz, Ardeshir Shiravi, Faraeein Goraz, Puran Dokht, Azarm Dokht, Farrokhzad, and Yazd Guerd. 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 Pahlavi form is more or less presented.

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