The last half of the epic of Borzu Nāmeh by Atā bin Yaqub Nākuk Razi, is based on the battle of Susan the Minstrel (rāmeshgar) with Iranian Heroes, and because of its independent structure, it is recounted as a separate story. According to the scholars, in its infrastructure, the story, like other national epics, narrates the ancient Iranian myths. From mythological point of view, by using two elements of action and character, the Creation myth of Bundahesh has been re-narrated in Borzu Nāmeh. It seems that by comparing the structure of the re-narrated myth and the structure of Borzu Nāmeh, it can be judged whether some verses and stories of the epopee have been added later. In this way, by referring to the text and structure of the myth, we can comment on the authenticity of the added or deleted parts of the epopee. Contrary to the opinion of some scholars and with regard to the reflection of the Creation myth of Bundahesh in Borzu Nāmeh, it seems that the story of Susan the Minstrel had not been added later to the epopee and is part of the main body of it.
