About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. THE stories comprising this collection have been culled with my own hands in the many-hued garden of Turkish folklore. They have not been gathered from books, for Turkey is not a literary land, and no books of the kind exist; but, an attentive listener to the storytellers who form a peculiar feature of the social life of the Ottomans, I have jotted them down from time to time, and now present them, a choice bouquet, to the English reading public. The stories are such as may be heard daily in the purlieus of Stamboul, in the small rickety houses of that essentially Turkish quarter of Constantinople where around the tandir the native women relate them to their children and friends. These tales are by no means identical with, nor do they even resemble, those others that have been assimilated by the European consciousness from Indian sources and the Arabian Nights. All real Turkish fairy tales are quite independent of those; rather are they related to the Western type so far as their contents and structure are concerned. Indeed, they may only be placed in the category of Oriental tales in that they are permeated with the cult of Islam and that their characters are Moslems. The kaftan encircling their bodies, the turban on their heads, and the slippers on their feet, all proclaim their Eastern origin. Their heroic deeds, their struggles and triumphs, are mostly such as may be found in the folklore of any European people. It is but natural that pagan superstition, inseparable from the ignorant, should be always cropping up in these stories. Like all real folklore they are not for children, though it is the children who are most strongly attracted by them, and after the children the women. They are mostly woven from the webs of fancy in that delectable realm, Fairyland; since it is there that everything wonderful happens, the dramatis person being as a rule supernatural beings.

About this Item: Abela Publishing, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Wily Pogany (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This volume is a treasure chest of classic Eastern tales drawing on the rich folklore of Turkey. Forty-four Turkish Fairy Tales has not been in print for almost 100 years, mainly because the original edition had lavish production standards. On the used market, mint copies of the 1913 original can cost up to four figures. This volume is appropriately titled Fairy Tales because something definitely fairy occurs. There are talking animals, flying horses, birds that magically change into beautiful maidens, quests to win the hand of a princess, magical objects, simple, yet brave, peasants, wizards, witches, dragons and dungeons, epic journeys, and loveable fools. The majority of these stories contain encounters with Dews , or Turkish supernatural beings, better known in the West as Genies. Sometimes the Turkish Dews are also called Arabs! There are many other specifically Turkish elements and references in the stories, for which the glossary at the end of the book is of particular help. So this isn t simply an orientalised set of European Tales, but was drawn from an authentic Turkish oral storytelling tradition by Dr. Ignacz Kunos . Plus, there are almost 200 illustrations exquisitely crafted by Willy Pogany. While our production is not as lavish as the original, it does contain the original illustrations. Note: some of the illustrations could be considered unsuitable by 21st Century standards because they can be considered as caricatures with obvious ethnic stereotypes. However, in most cases, the illustrator is portraying imaginary creatures, which are supposed to be grotesque. Also to be remembered is the book was originally produced in 1913 when the world s attitudes towards racial tolerance and acceptance were quite different to those of today. 33 of the net will be donated to charities in Turkey for education scholarships.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Willy Pogany (illustrator). Illustrated, Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Forty-Four Turkish Fairy Tales is a collection of Turkish fairy tales compiled by Dr. Ignac Kunos, a Hungarian-born linguist who, having an interest in the Turkish dialect and folk tradition, collected several volumes of oral fairy tales, not through reading and study, but by travelling around the Turkish country and listening to storytellers. In this elaborately produced volume, beautifully illustrated by Willy Pogany, Kunos describes the stories as being closer to the fairy tales of European tradition than those in Arabian Nights, seeking to dissuade his readers of any notion of Orientalism. However, the fact that these tales are thematically similar to their Western counterparts - containing stories of princesses and dragons, witches and white horses, heroes and villains - should not be surprising to any frequent reader of fairy tales. They are so often, in some way, international. One striking element of these tales from Turkey is the frequent presence of the over-sized supernatural beings referred to as Dews (or on occasion simply Arabs !) - known elsewhere in Islamic folklore as Devis or Jin (Europeanized as Genie ). With their towering form their closest cognate in the European tradition would be the figure of the giant, with some fairy-like elements thrown in for good measure. Like giants they are normally malevolent towards humans, but are sometimes friendly and helpful. EXCERPT from Forty-Four Fairy Tales Preface The fairyland of the Turks is approached by a threefold road, in most cases the realm can be reached only on the back of a Pegasus, or by the aid of the peris. One must either ascend to the seventh sphere above the earth by the help of the anka-bird, or descend to the seventh sphere below the earth by the help of a dew. A multitude of serais and kiosks are at the disposal of the heroes of the tales, - thousands of birds of gayest plumage warble their tuneful lays, and in the flower-gardens the most wonderful odours intoxicate the senses.

However, in most cases, the illustrator is portraying imaginary creatures, which are supposed to be grotesque. Also to be remembered is the book was originally produced in 1913 when the worlds attitudes towards racial tolerance and acceptance were quite different to those of today. 33 of the net will be donated to charities in Turkey for education scholarships This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781907256370

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Willy Pogany (illustrator). Illustrated. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. THE STORIES comprising this collection have been culled with my own hands in the many-hued garden of Turkish folklore. They have not been gathered from books, for Turkey is not a literary land, and no books of the kind exist; but, an attentive listener to THE STORY-TELLER who form a peculiar feature of the social life of the Ottomans, I have jotted them down from time to time, and now present them, a choice bouquet, to the English reading public. The stories are such as may be heard daily in the purlieus of Stamboul, in the small rickety houses of that essentially Turkish quarter of Constantinople where around the tandir the native women relate them to their children and friends. These tales are by no means identical with, nor do they even resemble, those others that have been assimilated by the European consciousness from Indian sources and the ARABIAN NIGHTS. All real Turkish fairy tales are quite independent of those; rather are they related to the Western type so far as their contents and structure are concerned. Indeed, they may only be placed in the category of Oriental tales in that they are permeated with the cult of Islam and that their characters are Moslems. The kaftan encircling their bodies, the turban on their heads, and the slippers on their feet, all proclaim their Eastern origin. Their heroic deeds, their struggles and triumphs, are mostly such as may be found in the folklore of any European people. It is but natural that pagan superstition, inseparable from the ignorant, should be always cropping up in these stories. Like all real folklore they are not for children, though it is the children who are most strongly attracted by them, and after the children the women. They are mostly woven from the webs of fancy in that delectable realm, Fairyland; since it is there that everything wonderful happens, the dramatis person being as a rule supernatural beings.
