Texte intégral

1Ḏakāvatī Qarāgozlū’s article is a sort of companion to his edition of the Eskandar-nāme (baḫš-e Ḫatā) (Tehrān, Mīrāṯ-e maktūb, 1384). It is devoted to the issue of the authorship of this particular version of the Eskandar-nāme, which is traditionally ascribed to Manūčehr Ḫān. After a rather long (given the overall length of the article) introduction, in which he touches on the issue of the role of the ‘ayyārs in the book (p. 131-134), Ḏakāvatī Qarāgozlū reaches three important conclusions. First, that “Manūčehr Ḫān-e Ḥakīm” probably denotes the brother of ‘Alīqolī Ḫān b. Qarčeqāy Ḫān, who was a member of a prominent family of military ġolāms of the Safavid period and the author of the Eḥyā-ye Ḥekmat (p. 134). Secondly, that the preeminence granted in the romance to Plato over Aristotle hints to the fact that the author was a follower of the philosophical school of Illuminationism, or ešrāq (p. 134-135). Thirdly, that Manūčehr Ḫān is not the true author of the Eskandar-nāme (p. 135), although there is evidence that he had an interest in epic tales and that he even gathered such tales in a book that was unfortunately then lost during a military campaign (p. 136).
