Borzunāmeh is an epic work composed in the eighth century AH by Shams al-din Mohammad kawsaj, in imitation of and as the continuation of ferdowsi's Shāhnāmeh. This poetic collection deals with the story of Borzu, Suhrab's son, and describing his heroism and bravery. An attempt has been made in the present study to show by descriptive method and library studies that Borzunāmeh's poet imitated not only Ferdowsi's method and style in epic poetry, but also some of his details such as using and quoting advice in his poetic work. One of the most significant finding of this research is the remarkable influence of the advice of Shāhnāmeh on Borzunāmeh especially in using highly frequent themes such as pointing out the way and manner of life and its related advice; a case that is greatly influenced by the ancient advice and ideas of Pahlavi texts. However, in some cases, the influences of advice of the poets and writers such as Nezami and the Onsor al-ma'ali kikavous can also be seen.
