We are aware of ten collections of verse under the title of Karnameh in the history of Persian literature.It is a collection of verse in the form of heroic couplet in which the poet reproaches the court members by using a parodied language. It is an independent literary genre used for less than two hundred and fifty years in Persian poetry. Some famous Persian poets have composed Karnameh. Because of its importance, mostly Sanâee Karnameh has been mentioned in books and articles on Persian poetry and other Karnamehs have been considered as a part of Shahrâshubs or an Ikhwani poem. There is no entry for Karnameh in dictionaries and encyclopedias. In this article, while introducing Karnameh in Persian, its form, theme, audience, structure and intertextual relations are investigated and it is shown that Karnameh is a special literary genre.
