Abstract:   (4102 Views)
 On this basis, this research is looking for mythological themes in one of the valuable collections of Iranian folk tales named Mashdi Galin Khanum's stories. In this research, after identifying mythical elements and characters among the stories, it is determined that the process of transferring myths into the folk tales of this book has changed them. Among other things some components of mythology have been removed or changed in their folk definition, or other details have been added to them and some ancient myths are reflected in the bodies of other characters. The total evolution of myths in the stories of this book, based on the pattern given by Mehrdad Bahar, has been studied under four headings: transformation, fracture, integration, and the entry of foreign elements. In the end, it is concluded that based on the evolving nature of myths, mythical characters and phenomena in folk tales are also narrated with changes to make them believable or in harmony with the new space. It is also possible to find out some neglected aspects of mythology by examining folk tales.
