Interpreting the literary texts has always attracted considerable attention, and there exist several critical approaches in this regard; semiotics is one of these approaches which merits mention. This study aims to examine a new approach based on the cultural semiotics.
Here this question arises that how the cultural semiotics will culminate in a more accurate interpretation of a literary text. This study presumes that via this new approach, we can achieve the optimal interpretation of the literary texts, one which is covered here being the weaponry in Rustam and Sohrab story in Ferdowsi’s Book of Kings. The methodology of the current study is based on the cultural semiotics and its patterns; thanks to these patterns, we may discover the semiotic system of the weaponry. The semiotic system of the weaponry, which unfolds across a semiotic sphere, leads to the discovery of the cultural concepts and signs. Interpreting poetry via this approach not only inhibits the cultural depression, but it also helps creation and recreation of the novel literary texts, and it also assists the literary texts, esp. poetry, learners and practitioners to analyze and explain the signs and attain new findings.
