Synopsis: No ordinary collection of tales, this anthology was the result of extensive research that lead Shah to conclude that there is a certain basic fund of human fictions, which recur again and again throughout the world and never seem to lose their compelling attraction. In this fascinating collection, Idries Shah shares this insight with us as we read the astonishingly similar versions of tales as they developed throughout the world.

From the Publisher: Each tale is preceded by an introduction tracing its origin and development across time and place, with many surprising insights into familiar stories. For example, the saga of William Tell, believed for centuries to have been a historic event, was in existence in virtually the same form as a Norse tale, 300 years before Tell lived.

"We find the Algonquin version of Cinderella; we wonder how the story of Aladdin and the Lamp was found in Wales, and then, perhaps, taken to the East where we know It." --Robert Ornstein

This special paperback version of World Tales concentrates on the essentials, the text of the stories, and omits the illustrations that were part of a previous edition.
