The art of the Turkish Tale: Volume 2

By Walker, Barbara K. (Barbara Kerlin) 1921-

United States: Texas Tech University Press Series: v. 2: Ministry of Culture publications of the Republic of Turkey ; 1437. This is the Hard Cover version in a Dust Jacket. { see image of copyright page for more details } 'In casting them into English, Walker has paid particular attention to capturing the flavor and excitement of the Turkish telling, while not infringing 'on the narrator's right to have the tale recreated as he had told it'. The Beauty, power, and appeal of the present volume for the general reading public, however, depends largely upon Barbara Walker's own consummate skill as a teller and re-teller of tales and her commitment to conveying as much of the Turkish performance context as possible. In a gesture which is perhaps symptomatic of the reasons for this volume's success, [Barbara Walker] recognizes in the Acknowledgments section each and every tale-teller by name - all forty of them, ranging in age from nine to ninety and coming from the many different walks of life, both urban and rural, to be found in twenty out of Turkey's seventy-four provinces from Mugla to Kars and from Istanbul to Diyarbakir. In presenting the works of 'all these generous bearers of tradition' to an English-speaking audience, [she] has achieved her aim of opening a small window on the art of the Turkish tale in a volume which stands as a tribute to the art of book making as well' - Sarah Moment Atis, Chair, Middle East Studies Program, University of Wisconsin-Madison President, Turkish Studies Association. 'This will stand as a fine, quintessential contribution. One hears the whispers of the original voices in these versions, all of which are artful, recast in colloquial rhythms, and couched in a style that conveys the substance, the shape, the spirit, and the sumptuousness or the simplicity of the tale' - Talat Sait Halman, Turkey's former Minister of Culture, then Ambassador for Cultural Affairs; now Professor of Near Eastern Languages and Literatures, New York University. p.262, illustrated, with Index.
