This article is concerned with the analysis of the macro-structure of Rostam and Esfandiyar epic based on Labov and Waletsky (1976) model. It consists of ten small narrations which each one necessitates the other. This epic which includes an introduction (orientation), setting and resolution is applied to the model: The orientation consists of four narrations, the setting one main narration and the resolution has two of them. The epic general schema is compatible with the main parts of the model, yet there are some slight differences between them, including: having an abstract, the way and the place of evaluation, and having the coda which is not the same as the model's.
It is also concluded that all the epic clauses represent two main model functions: referential and evaluative.
