9781440079726: Russian Folk-Tales (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Russian Folk-Tales

The Stories contained in the following pages arc taken from the collections published by Afanasief, Khudyakof, Erlenvein, and Chudinsky. The South-Russian collections of Kulish and Rudchenko I have been able to use but little, there being no complete dictionary available of the dialect, or rather the language, in which they are written. Of these works that of Afanasief is by far the most important, extending to nearly 3,000 pages, and containing 332 distinct stories - of many of which several variants are given, sometimes as many as five. Khudyakof's collection contains 122 skazkas - as the Russian folk-tales are called - Erlenvein's 41, and Chudinsky's 31. Afanasief has also published a separate volume, containing 33 'legends,' and he has inserted a great number of stories of various kinds in his 'Poetic views of the Old Slavonians about Nature,' a work to which I have had constant recourse.

From the stories contained in what may be called the 'chap-book literature' of Russia I have made but few extracts. It may, however, be as well to say a few words about them.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Russian Folk-Tales Of late years several articles have appeared in some of the German periodicals,3 giving accounts or translations of some of the Russian Popular Tales. But no thorough investigation of them appeared in print, out of Russia, until the publication last year of the erudite work on Zoological Mythology by Professor Angelo de Gubernatis. In it he has given a summary of the greater part of the stories contained in the Collections of Afanasief and Erlenvein, and so fully has he described the part played in them by the members of the animal world that I have omitted, in the present volume, the chapter I had prepared on the Russian beast-epos.
