Abstract:   (373 Views)
     The story " the stuning castle" or also called " Ghal'e Zatosoor"  starts from the 3582nd couplet of the sixth part of Masnavi Manavi. Moulana composes the verse through 1293 couplets to portrait the story of three princes who take the journey to see the daughature of China's king. This seemingly unfinished story which has appeared with a little difference in the articles of Shams Tabrizi can be considered as the extreme limit of Moulana's thoughts and his bearing. This story will analyze and assess this narrative from the viewpoint of characterization and its various themes. The instrument to analyze this narrative, Greimas actantial model, can assess the characters and the story lines around three axes namely, "desire", "transmission"and "power".  The value object and main purpose of the narrative is the "lovemaking and consummating the daughter of China's king". What makes the princes try hard to attain this aim is "their love and the fall of their eyes and hearts" for the carven image on the wall of the castle. On the "transmission" axis, "the talks of princes' father" is the main reason to persuade them to go to the castle and to see the portraite of king's daughter; then after meeting her they have benefited from her love and passion. On the "power" axis, the first protagonist of these princes is the "love power", and their main antagonist is " rationalism instead of  love" and "selfishness, arrogance and egotism" which leads them toward fatality.
