The Discourse of Mythological Resistance in the Story of Siāvash; A Semantic and Semiotic Analysis

In mythological resistance, a centralized presence with an internal power is formed and subject acts as a discursive actor. Siāvash, as a subject and discursive actor, is one of the central characters of Shāhnāmeh</em> who has achieved an internal power. He presents a coherent and transcendental image of the "centralized presence". This presence places the subject as the symbol of identity in the center of discourse. The rival subject adjusts his presence in relation to Siāvash and involves in a mutual interaction or a challenging relationship with him. This confrontation and interaction between them appears in the form of two macro-narratives of resistance and tolerance. The main question is "how the discourse of mythological resistance and consequently, the discourses of resistance and tolerance have been realized in the story of Siāvash". In fact, the purpose of the present research is to examine the method of realization of the discourse of resistance semantically and semiotically, and its impact on the formation of identity and value. Based on descriptive-analytical method, in the present article the attempt is made to show that the subject (Siāvash) defends fulfilling contracts and righteousness by using the techniques of the mythological resistance. On the other hand, the rival subject stands in front of him and forces him to obey, but the subject resists.
