Old Deccan Days of Hindoo Fairy Legends

Mary Frere (Author) Kiran Narayan (Editor)
Synopsis Collectors in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries unearthed a wealth of stories from around the world and published them in English translations for the delight of general readers, young and old. Most of these anthologies have been long out of print. The ABC-CLIO Classic Folk and Fairy Tales series brings back to life these key anthologies of traditional tales from the golden age of folklore discovery. Each colume provides a freshly typeset but otherwise virtually unaltered edition of a classic work and each is enhanced by an authoritative introduction by a top scholar. These insightful essays discuss the significance of the collection and its original collector; the original collector’s methodology and translation practices; and the original period context according to region or genre. Certain to be of interest to folklorists, these classic collections are also meant to serve as sources for storytellers and for theer reading pleasure, reviving as they do hundreds of folk stories, both reassuringly familiar and excitingly strange.
