Details: Product Description This is an enchanting selection from one of Europe's richest traditions of folk literature. The vitality of Popa's chosen material is wonderfully conveyed in this adaptation by Andrew Harvey and Anne Pennington. Review 'Throughout there is the sense of the unadorned, unrationalized essence of folk tradition - This book entertains and startles afresh on each reading.' - Michael Cayley, PN Review ' - an absolute delight. The tales fly along relentlessly to their enigmatic endings, mixing up the ridiculous, the miraculous and the commonplace, putting to shame the puerile moralizing of many modern children's books. The irrational is sitting in the trees waiting to leap upon you - ' - George Szirtes, Quarto About the Author Vasko Popa (1922-91), Serbia's greatest modern poet, was born and brought up in the Banat district. His 'Collected Poems' in English was introduced by his admirer Ted Hughes. Anne Pennington (1934-81) was a Fellow of Lady Margaret Hall where she held the Chair of Comparative Slavonic Philology. She translated Vasko Popa's 'Collected Poems'. Andrew Harvey, born in 1952 in South India, is a religious scholar, writer, teacher, and the author of more than 30 books.
