PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
A magical collection of 47 traditional Hungarian folk tales, in English translation: dragons, witches, fairies, quests and fantastic happenings to delight any lover of fairytales. Much-loved stories, showcasing the cultural heritage of Hungary, a country at the cross-roads of Europe and reflecting the influence of storytelling traditions from both East and West. Authentic tales and retellings draw upon the work of revered 19th century literary folklorists John Erdélyi (1814-68), John Kriza (1811-75), Julius Pap (1813-70); 20th century author Baroness Orczy (1865-1947); and contemporary storyteller Maja Bumberák (b.1977). Themed sections mix tales of fairy folk, quests and adventure, magical creatures, transformations and humorous parables of foolish kings and villagers. Includes ‘Uletka and the White Lizard’, ‘Prince Mirkó’, ‘Mezoszárnyasi’, and ‘The World’s Beautiful Woman’, with echoes of the story known as ‘Snow White’.
