In Bakhtiāri dialect, šowxin is a type of folk and epic poetry that describes the bravery, struggle and murder of one of the brave elders or men of Bakhtiāri people. Like other folk poems they have had anonymous poets. The order and number of their verses are different, and mainly reflect the love and devotion of people towards their ethnic heroes. These poems also refer to certain traditions, beliefs in addition to historical, political and social issues of Bakhtiāri people. Since most of works on Persian folk language and literature has not been adequately addressed, this article provides an overview of the research on Bakhtiāri poetry. These poems have been described and it is briefly stated that there is about 24 šowxin type (389 verse) in this dialect, among them four are important and remarkable. The present paper seeks to explore the structural and content characteristics of Bakhtiārichr('39')s šowxin, such as their templatic characters, elements, contexts of epic poetry and strong descriptions. Šowxins are considered influential folk poems and deserve to be taken into account from different viewpoints among different ethnic groups.
