Some classical texts are considered as supertexts and mother texts in Persian poetry, which more or less spread their shadow over other texts in all or most literary periods. Hakim Abulqasem Ferdowsi's Shahnameh is one of these hypertexts whose signs of its presence can be traced in many subsequent texts, both epic and non-epic. In modern times, poets have been influenced by stories, characters, myths and other aspects of Shahnameh on various occasions.Simin Behbahani is one of the poets who, with a relatively good knowledge of the Shahnameh and its fictional world, has been able to create extensive intertextual interactions with the Shahnameh. In this research, with analytical-descriptive method, we have sought to analyze and examine the fields of familiarity and the amount of use of Simin and the quality and manner of these uses of the Shahnameh. The findings of this research show that Simin Behbahani, due to growing up in a scientific family and personal studies, had a relatively broad knowledge of the stories and influential characters of the Shahnameh, and was able to use the stories of the Shahnameh in various positions to arouse people's sense of love for Iran and also to remember the heroes. Taking refuge in the Shahnameh and its heroes in search of a savior, using lyrical dimensions and drawing the political-social atmosphere of the contemporary era are other factors that have led Simin to use the mythological stories of the Shahnameh.
