The intellectual teachings and philosophical foundations of Shahnameh (Book of Kings) serve as the best example and model for constructing a desirable and refined society based on human principles. Some researchers have considered Ferdowsi's worldview the best model for creating a globally balanced world with relative happiness. "Wisdom," "Justice," and "Wonder" are the three main pillars of Ferdowsi's thought in Shahnameh. Alongside these principles, concepts such as joyful living, moral lessons, contemplation of the ephemeral world, the mystery of death and fate, freedom and liberty, and many other concepts find expression in the artistic expression of the grand palace of literature.
This article, collected through a descriptive-analytical method and library sources, explores the linguistic functions of Shahnameh and the range of linguistic capacities and concerns of the enduring face of Iranian culture and literature in creating a foundation of Persian language elements, unique Persian names, and authentic Persian vocabulary, which are essential aspects of the national epic of Iran. The article also analyzes and examines Ferdowsi's artistic expression in three axes: "simplicity of language," "tone and music," and "rhetorical and innovative principles."
