Shiite Discourses in Alinameh Epopee
Abstract:   (6457 Views)
Alinameh is one of rare religious – historical epopees of the fifth century (hijri), which its content includes expression of historical events from the beginning of Imam Ali (AS) caliphate to the end of the battle of Siffin. Reading of this work indicates that the poet has seeking to glorify the beliefs of Shiites in addition to report the events. This issue besides considering of Shiites and Sunnites controversy during fifth century (hijri) led us to the fundamental question on if Alinameh epopee limited itself only to describe the events of early Islamic period or behind its narrative it was seeking to proof the rightfulness of Imam Ali (AS) and Shia beliefs. Our claim is that the Alinameh epopee is trying to reject Sunnites' viewpoints and to glorify Shi'a concepts beside expression of the Camel and Siffin events, considering the social and cultural conditions and contexts of the fifth century (hijri). This paper has been written based on Laclau and Moufe Discourse Analysis Theory.
