Seti Nameh forms part of Old Persian poetry which was heavily influenced by Indian literature. Burning and Melting by Nau’i Khabushani is one of the verse anthologies that focuses on this issue. A close look at the structure of this work of art shows that the author has used special techniques in narrative the story which, stated otherwise, would lose much of its appeal. In the narrative analysis of Burning and Melting, the present study draws on the theory proposed by Zheplint Volt, the French critic. The critical analysis of the work showed that, looking at the plot of the story from this perspective, the only shortcoming is the absence of an organize force in the story which, of course, does not damage the overall structure of the story. Looking at the text from a narrative genres perspective, it was found that Burning and Melting is a disordered and text-based work which uses an omniscient point of view. Hence, it adopts an all-knowing stance that gives the reader the chance to see all the internal and external actions of the characters. Given the peculiar narrative structure of the text, the lyrical aspect of the work reaches its height  in the event of the burning of the bride and groom.

Keywords: : Zheplint Volt, Narrative genre, Plot, Narrative perspective, Point of view.
