Detailed Description

THE GARNETT BOOK OF RUSSIAN FOLK AND ANONY­MOUS VERSE collects the best and most interesting Russian folk poetry, from the pre-Christian epics of Kievan Rus to the satirical quatrains of today’s Russia, with an English prose version at the bottom of each page.

IT IS AIMED at interested readers of poetry, those with a rudimentary knowledge but strong interest in Russian, or university students of Russian literature.

 IT IS ALSO of great value to folklorists, who will be intrigued by the convergence, as well as the divergence, of Russian folk tradtions to and from neighbouring folk cultures of Europe and Asia

CARE HAS BEEN taken to establish the most authoritative texts of the Russian originals, for folk poetry naturally is recorded in a wide range of versions and accurate, transparent, yet readable English versions. The fullest use has been made of the textological and research work in Russia of the last twenty-five years.
