    PDF READ Shahnameh: The Persian Book of Kings (Penguin Classics) This may well be the great Persian epic, but in that case Heaven help Iran. There are occasional moments of relief, like Kay Khusrow's self analysis, or Ardeshir's just administration, but these are only oases in a desert of vaunting vainglory sprinkled with base treachery. I've long felt I ought to read it, and now it's done, and I'm sorry to have so bestowed my time.
