Afsaneh ha ye Gilan - Folktales of Gilan


Add to Cart:

Hadi Gholamdoost, prominent Persian folklorist and author has spent thirty years in the villages and small towns of Eastern Gilan, Iran to collect these folk stories of people of Gilan. Gholamdoost has written a very informative introduction to the stories. He describes the typology of stories. He explains their significance, meaning and their relationship to the people's way of life. According to Gholamdoost some of the stories have such subtle nuanced meanings that they cannot be translated into standard Persian. He has thus recorded and published them verbatim. All the narrators are credited by name. Key concepts or words that are needed for the reader to unlock the true meaning of the stories are given in footnotes if such a note has been necessary. Highly Recommended!
