Arash-e Kamangir: Empty Space of Arash Story in Shahnameh
The answer of the author of this small book to the question why the story of Arash Kamangir did not appear in Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh is a completely new and different answer. By exploring the various narratives of this story, the author shows how an ancient myth is changing in the power struggles and legitimization and de-legitimization struggles of the Parthians and Sassanids and in the context of the Iranian Shahnameh tradition.

This Book “Arash-e Kamangir” by Ferdowsi. Arash Kamangir or Arash Kamankesh or Arash Tirandaz or Arash Shivatir (Avestan: Erkhsheh and in Pahlavi language Arash Shipaktir) is the name of one of the ancient Iranian myths and also the name of the main character of this myth. Arash was one of Manouchehr’s troops who was chosen as an Iranian archer after the end of the Iran-Turan war to recognize the border between Iran and Turan. From the top of the mountain “Irio Khoshota” in Tabarestan, he went from the fourth country to Fereydoun’s birthplace Left to Mount Juanont in the east. The Persian-speaking people of Xinjiang (Turkey) in western China believe that this arrow landed on a walnut tree in that land, which is called the “Arash Tree”, and for this reason Afrasiab Mountain and the Shingan Valley, next to it, are the “border of Iran and Turan”.
