An anthology of folk tales of the Cyclades
An anthology of folk tales from rare and hard-to-find editions with the addition of anecdotal tales recorded by the author.
This book is addressed to those who love fairy tales, to those who wish not only to read but also to listen to fairy tales. The fairy tale reaches the modern public through a variety of ways, it becomes a reading for children or for adults, listening, spectacle, game, marketable good. Close to all of this, however, there is also the voice of the folk storyteller.
Giorgis Venetoulias first heard fairy tales from his grandmother to whom he dedicates his first collection of folk tales, the "Fairy Tales of Kythnos". People who are around us today are the living mosaic of the bearers of folk tales and folk culture.
(From the foreword by Professor Marianthis Kaplanoglou)
