Popular stories of ancient Egypt by G Maspero( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When first published in 1882, the folktales collected in Popular Stories of Ancient Egypt comprised the first anthology of ancient Egyptian narratives ever to be compiled into book form. The culmination of a life's work by Gaston Maspero, a towering figure of nineteenth-century Egyptology, it presented a wealth of information on Egyptian culture, language, history, and society. Since its publication, additional texts have been discovered, deciphered, or translated into modern languages. The present collection is made up of twenty-four tales gleaned from countless ancient written sources, and from a variety of historical periods. It contains some of the most ancient folktales in existence, such as The Tale of the Two Brothers, thought to be the oldest in the world. Other stories include King Khufui and the Magicians, The Lamentations of the Fellah, The Shipwrecked Sailor, The Adventure of Satni-Khamois with the Mummies, The Doomed Prince, and The Story of Rhampsinitus. This edition contains a new foreword by Hasan El-Shamy that describes Maspero's work, and provides for the first time a motif index and extensive identifications of the ancient Egyptian traditions in terms of international tale-types." "Certain to be of interest to folklorists and Egyptologists, this classic collection will also amuse parents, students, storytellers, or anyone who enjoys authentic folk wisdom."--Jacket

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The folktales collected here - from Teuan, Al-Huceima, Marrakesh, Taza, Fes, and Tahanout - provide a glimpse into Morocco's rich past and cultural heritage." "Drawing on stories he heard as a boy from female relatives, Jilali El Koudia presents a cross section of utterly bewitching narratives. Filled with ghouls and fools, kind magic and wicked, eternal bonds and earthly wishes, these are mesmerizing stories to be savored, studied, or simply treasured. Varied genres include anecdotes, legends, and animal fables. Many of the included tales bear some strong resemblance to European counterparts, for example "Aamar and His Sister" (Hansel and Gretel) and "Nunja and the White Dove" (Cinderella). All capture the heart of Morocco and the soul of its people."--Jacket

Folkloric behavior : a theory for the study of the dynamics of traditional culture by Hasan M El-Shamy( )

4 editions published between 1967 and 1972 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Folklore" may be defined as a class of learned, traditional responses forming a distinct type of behavior. The individual must undergo the psychological process of learning in order to acquire the responses of folkloric behavior, and this learning process occurs under conditions determined by social and cultural factors. The fundamental factors involved in learning are: drive, cue, response, and reward. Secondary factors such as repetition, recency, and ego involvement can contribute, but their presence is not required in the process of learning. Folkloric behavior is distinguishable from non traditional, non folkloric behavior, and consequently, folkloric responses are distinguishable from other classes of responses, such as those characteristic of modern science and technology. Thus, folklorists should initially concern themselves with folkloric responses (narrating, believing, singing, applying a proverb, or dancing) and relevant social and cultural factors before proceeding to the study of the folklore items themselves (narratives, beliefs, songs, proverbs, or dances). Through the application of psychological theories of individual and social learning to folkloric phenomena, we can gain an understanding of the forces affecting the perpetuation or extinction of folklore and thus can explain the function of a particular folkloric response in a particular community
Beyond Oedipus : the brother-sister syndrome as depicted by tale-type 872* : a cognitive behavioristic, demographically oriented text analysis of an Arab oikotype by Hasan M El-Shamy( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beyond Oedipus reveals the existence of The Brother-Sister Syndrome, a pivotal psychological core that has been eclipsed by the presumption of the existence of an Oedipal complex among Arab and neighboring peoples. In essence the Syndrome is manifested through brother-sister love that strongly affects other nuclear family relationships as well as the structure of sentiments in the larger kinship groups. In addition to being a case study of "Folkloric Behavior" founded on verifiable evidence, Beyond Oedipus re-introduces and redefines the psychology of 'cognitive systems' to folklore scholarship. In its unique treatment of 39 variants of an Arab-world folk narrative, and a host of interconnected folk, popular and elite sociocultural expressions, this ground-breaking study accounts for aspects of performing a tale in a style and structure characteristics of ethnic, age, and gender groups"--Back cover
