More > fairy tales—some similar to, but others vastly different from, their Western European equivalents—is superbly captured in this collection, which includes such tempting titles as “The Mild Man and His Cantankerous Wife,” and the “Story of the Most Wonderful and Noble Self-Playing Harp.” As Steele notes in his introduction, some of the tales are obviously of German origin—adopted and made Russian, like that of the “Seven Simeons” or “Emelyan, the Fool,” while others are as evidently Eastern. A few date from the Russian Epics, like that of “Iliya of Murom” and “Ivan the Peasant’s Son;” others are of later date, like that of “The Judgment of Shemyaka,” who was a historic character who lived about 1446. This delightful collection also offers a fascinating look into classical Russian culture and folklore.< Less
