The present study seeks to answer these questions: What is the use of heroic literature texts in teaching history? How can one use heroic literature to teach history effectively? The research method is historical and descriptive-analytical. Three texts of (Craftiness) Ayari literature including Samak Ayar, Hossein Kurd Shabestari and Amir Arsalan Namdar, which have a high capacity in teaching history in terms of historical and social information, have been studied and the findings show that the texts of Heroic literature due to their simple nature, explicit and auditory appeal can be effective in deepening historical learning and promoting learners' interest in history lessons.
