Part of Shirin's speech is omitted here, and something of her performance; see the analysis of the story by Christine van Ruymbeke, "Khusrau va Shirin: not much of a love story", in the forthcoming proceedings of the Second Cambridge Shahnama conference. The picture, however, once more closely follows the text (Ch.M.).
Khusrau Parviz (38 years)
