Popular tales and fictions : their migrations and transformations by W. A Clouston( )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1887, after it became apparent that many of the same folktales were told in different countries and even on different continents, this volume attempts to uncover the origins, similarities and variations of works of early literature and collections of folktales from Egyptian, Chinese Budhist, Indian, Arabic, Persian and European cultures. I t retells classic tales, then invites the reader to judge "of their common origin, and the transformations they have undergone in passing from one country to another." While some of the tales are familiar to modern readers, many are not. This edition includes: original folktales collected from all over Europe, Asia and North Africa; an introduction including literary appreciation for Clouston's work and an overview of modern comparative folktale research; and reference directing the reader to recent scholarship devoted to the tales in question

Turandot's Sisters (RLE Folklore) by Christine Goldberg( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central tale studied in Turandot's Sisters, first published in 1993, is The Princess Who Can Not Solve the Riddle, AT 851. Other wisdom tales are surveyed to show that they are separate from the riddle tales in material and in spirit. Customs and beliefs concerning riddling and riddle contests are examined to see what motifs from the tales are taken from reality, leaving the rest to be either fantasy motifs or stylistic traits. The central tale AT 851 is analysed in detail to exhibit its obligatory and optional elements, a wealth of possibilities that enables it to adapt to a range of mood
