Since the old times, Persian literature has had a wide scope and a deep content; therefore, there are more rooms for ample investigations. One of the literary forms of old Persian texts is the structure of minimal and long story. Here, Attar’s two works (Mosibatname & Manteghotteire) are studied based on the Lobav Valtsky’s and Grimas‘s patterns. The authors start the investigation based on the hypothesis that structure of Mosibatname’s stories, because of their similarities of plot and ethical points to tales and narrations, are conformed with the Lobav Valtsky’s pattern; but the overall structure of Manteghotteire ‘s story, because of its similarities to long story, is corresponded with the Grimas’s criteria. There are many short narrations in Manteghotteir based on the Lobav’s pattern; however, here we investigate the overall structure of the book as a long story. This paper using descriptive-analytic method and library resources, investigates the structure of minimal story in Mosibatname and its conformity with the Lobav’s pattern, and then investigates the structure of long story in Manteghotteire and its conformity with the Grimas’s pattern. Finally, it concludes that conformity of the two aforesaid patterns on one writer’s works does not make linguistic and structural differences in these works, rather it shows the structural differences of these two patterns.
