Chapter Summary

In this chapter, a synopsis of the text and a synoptic chart of the narrative sequence as an aid to the understanding of the analysis is given. Synoptic Chart of the Narrative Structure focuses on two principal narratives: B2-B3 the journey to, and first settlement in, Sanjan, India, and C2-C3 the battles fought alongside a Hindu ruler against a Muslim invader who attacked Sanjan. Bahman, however, seems to have put everything he knew of poetic art, into this section of the text, in metaphor, simile and other dramatic devices, especially in imitation of the epic poet Ferdowsi. First, the battles that follow are significant as the third of three rites of passage into India, the first two having been the rite of the natural elements of the storm at sea and the political negotiations of entry and settlement in the Rajah's territory.

Keywords: Journey:Synopsis; metaphor; poetic art; rites of passage; Sanjan
