Little is known of the Luri dialect of Khurramabad, but Professor Amanolahi of Shiraz University has collected various stories from his native town in the local language. Together with Wheeler Thackston of Harvard he has prepared a compact volume covering the tales in transcription, translations into English, a short grammatical sketch, and a Luri-English vocabulary (Luristan is a province of western Iran in the Zagros Mountains). The traditional grammatical analysis of the dialect is easy to follow and the translations of both poetry and prose closely follow the original, a tribute to the close collaboration of the two scholars. This unique volume will be of great interest to students of the folklore, linguistics, and customs of the inhabitants of the center of Luristan.

From the Back Cover:

This volume of the Harvard Iranian Series presents stories from Luristan in transcription and translation with grammatical notes. It should be of interest not only to those concerned with Iranian dialectology, but also to students of folklore and anthropology. Little has appeared in print about the folklore of Iran, and with rapid changes in that land any preservation of relevant materials should be welcomed.

About the Author:

Wheeler M. Thackston is retired Professor of the Practice in Persian and Other Near Eastern Languages at Harvard University.
