This paper which has been written in a discriptive-analytic manner analyzed and compared the narrative structure of 13 allegorical and symbolic poetic romances. Beyond their romantic and narrative appearance, due to their allegorical, symbolic and mystical themes, these poetic romances have a distinct structure among Persian poetic romances. After analyzing the poetic romances according to Propp's narrative model and discovering a common intertextual link between them all, research results revealed that these romantic poems are similar and close to each other in terms of their structure, function and personality, and that they follow almost the same conventions. These romances are based on 19 main functions and four personality types (hero, princess, helper and villain). The outline of the narrative in these romances indictates the similar structure in them which is a change from equilibrium and a return to a state of equilibrium again. Accordingly, considering the way in which equilibrium and movement are disturbed in the opening scene of the tale, there are two general patterns for the narrative structure of the tales: 1. movement-creation based on the need 2. movement-creation based on the need and wickedness of the villain.
