Pressestimmen 'There is no comparable book in English. The translation looks quite fine! This is quite original work by one of the most prominent scholars of the Caucasus in this hemisphere one who is also most knowledgeable in Indo-European mythology and is an accomplished linguist.'--Edgar C. Polomé author of Indo-European Religion after Dumeziland Language Society and Paleoculture'Reminiscent of the Grimm fairytales and the Icelandic Eddas these lively tales abound with giants and witches and dwarves and mountain-sized monsters born of rock ice and fire. This is a major new resource for students in mythology linguistics and folklore for which John Colarusso provides a sober and expert commentary as guide.'--Elizabeth Wayland Barber author of The Mummies of Urumchi'This book will introduce a wide readership to a unique and ancient relic of human lore still tenaciously preserved in the North Caucasus--a fabulous world of gods and goddesses demigods and antigods monsters and ogres giants and lilliputians witches and warlocks Caucasian Medusas and tree-ladies. Further it is timely in that the Northwest Caucasians are stirring from a long slumber and are grappling to reforge their identity and find their place in the comity of nations. Professor Colarusso has rendered this culture a great service enriching world culture in the process.'--Amjad Jaimoukha author of The Circassians: A Handbook'The translations offered by Colarusso include fascinating strange and sometimes grotesque mythic tales that show amazing parallels with Classical and other Indo-European stories. The characters are enormously interesting especially the figure of Satanya a powerful female heroine/goddess which will have an instant appeal to those scholars and general readers alike now discovering Goddess myths. As pure narratives these stories with their tales-within-tales giants stolen brides and wise elders also command attention.'--Richard P. Martin Stanford University'Reading this book was an exciting intellectual experience. These tales are extremely rich and thought-provoking. Doubtless many other readers will respond just as enthusiastically as I have and recognize the importance of the Nart corpus--and Colarusso's commnentary on it--for their own research. This represents the first compendium in any language to my knowledge of Nart sagas from all of the Northwest-Caucasian-speaking peoples.'--Kevin Tuite Université de Montréal'An excellent translation of a rare standard of Eurasian mythology the work blends annotation and commentary to demystify the complex philosophical text.'--Library Journal'A new important resource for those with a general interest in the lore of the North Caucasus in comparative mythology and in linguistics. . . . Colarusso's familiarity with the Indo-European traditions is seen in the copious commentaries and notes accompanying the sagas. Meticulous and at times very detailed they not only serve as a guide to a better understanding of the sagas themselves but provide an introduction to the vast field of Eurasian myth. . . . Colarusso is to be congratulated for this splendid contribution to the field for his scholarship for his devotion to the subject and for bringing this collection of Nart sagas to us.'---Patricia Arant Slavic and East European Journal Buchrückseite 'There is no comparable book in English.
