Among the various types of rhetorical figures applied in Shahnameh, metaphor is one of the most effective examples of rhetorical devices. Ferdowsi has been able to imagine, exaggerate, move and depict it at the same time by using it as a means to create discursive space and dialogic atmosphere.
Since we encounter with the text of discourse in the Shahnameh, we find that every word is a way  toward the  perception of the former and a way to perceive the word of the future. Each word treats another word or it targets the belief system of the target audience.So, braggadocio is a dialogic- discursive system in which metaphore plays a key role. According to Bakhtin's theory, there is a close relationship between dialogue and polyphony, and language is also "dialogic" in its nature, regardless of what the answer will actually be.
Polyphony is also a dialogic feature, and Shahnameh is also a Polyphonic- dialogic text. The purpose of the present research is to investigate the relationship between the braggadocio of Shahnameh with making narration by relying on Bakhtin's dialogic theory and its relationship with metaphor, and to show how this feature interferes with the restoration of action, suspension, and delay. It can lead to a dialogic atmosphere and extend it to transfer actions.
