Product Description


"Dr. Huw Lewis has become a new link in the storyteller's chain. He has made it possible for these Spanish folktales to traverse the boundaries of space, time and language. Thanks to his labour of love, they may now be read and appreciated by a new group of readers in the twenty-first century." - Dr. Patricia Odber de Baubeta Department of Hispanic Studies The University of Birmingham "Traditional storytelling in Spain has simply never received the kind of attention among Hispanists... that has been lavished on the closely related genre of the Spanish ballad.... Dr. Huw Lewis makes an intelligent and well-judged initial and well-judged foray into this area, presenting a shrewdly chosen anthology of Spanish traditional tales, diverse in regional origin, subject matter, and narrative styles.... It is a book that will prove useful to folklorists working in other areas, as well as to Hispanists seeking a necessary extension of their competence into this field." - Dr. Nicholas Round Professor of Spanish University of Sheffield"
