Two hundred and twenty tales from medieval Japan—tales that welcome us into a fabulous faraway world populated by saints, scoundrels, ghosts, magical healers, and a vast assortment of deities and demons. Stories of miracles, visions of hell, jokes, fables, and legends, these tales reflect the Japanese civilization. They ably balance the lyrical and the dramatic, the ribald and the profound, offering a window into a long-vanished culture. With black-and-white illustrations throughout Part of the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library

Die großartige Sammlung russischer Volksmärchen von Alexander Afanasjew verzauberte schon Generationen von Lesern in aller Welt. Ihr Reiz speist sich aus dem Reichtum der russischen Erzähltradition und der schier grenzenlos wirkenden Vielfalt ihrer Stoffe. Afanasjew gilt zu Recht als der russische Grimm: Ähnlich wie dem berühmten deutschen Brüderpaar ging es ihm um die Bewahrung des wertvollen literarischen Erbes seiner Sprache, um das Bewusstsein, welch grandioser Schatz in den mythischen Märchenerzählungen seines Landes liegt.

Die über Jahrtausende gewachsene Kultur Japans beeindruckt und fesselt bis heute. Sehr eng sind die historische Überlieferung und das moderne Leben des inzwischen hochtechnisierten Inselstaates miteinander verwoben. Fremdartig und bisweilen entrückt wirken die Sagen, Mythen und Märchen, die Mitford für sein 1871 erstmals erschienenes Buch "Tales of Old Japan" zusammentrug, so etwa die berühmte Erzählung von den "47 Ronin" oder der lange Bericht über das berüchtigte Harakiri, die rituelle Selbsttötung der Samurai. Über 30 zeitgenössische japanische Illustrationen geben dem Band seinen besonderen Flair.

Storytelling is relationship. Stories become the threads that bind a family. We all tell stories about our experiences and daily life. When we die, it is our stories that are remembered. Family stories remembered and shared help the family, and the individuals who comprise it, to survive and flourish. Storytelling within the family provides quality time; creating bonds, increasing listening skills, and fostering communication. Enrich your family life, connect with your children, and celebrate your ancestors by learning to tell family stories, folktales, and nursery rhymes. Telling Tales: Storytelling in the Family is a fascinating guide to the art of gathering and telling stories. Written by three renowned storytellers, Telling Tales includes personal stories, how-to tips and extensive resource lists, and builds upon the success of the acclaimed first edition. Storytelling is contagious. Telling stories helps us make sense of what is happening around us and within ourselves. Stories are our powerful gift to the younger generation.

Kij Johnson has created an achingly beautiful love story, a fable wrapped in smoke and magic set against the fabric of ancient Japan. Johnson brings the setting lovingly to life, describing a world of formalities and customs, where the exchange of poetry is a form of conversation and everything has meaning, from the color of the silks on wears to how one may address others. Yoshifuji is a man fascinated by foxes, a man discontented and troubled by the meaning of life. A misstep at court forces him to retire to his long-deserted country estate, to rethink his plans and contemplate the next move that might return him to favor and guarantee his family's prosperity. Kitsune is a young fox who is fascinated by the large creatures that have suddenly invaded her world. She is drawn to them and to Yoshifuji. She comes to love him and will do anything to become a human woman to be with him. Shikujo is Yoshifuji's wife, ashamed of her husband, yet in love with him and uncertain of her role in his world. She is confused by his fascination with the creatures of the wood, and especially the foxes that she knows in her heart are harbingers of danger. She sees him slipping away and is determined to win him back from the wild...for all that she has her own fox-related secret. Magic binds them all. And in the making (and breaking) of oaths and honors, the patterns of their lives will be changed forever. The Fox Woman is a powerful first novel, singing with lyrical prose and touching the deepest emotions. A historically accurate fantasy, it gives us a glimpse into, and an understanding of, the history that shaped the people of one of our world's greatest nations. But it is also a story about people trying to understand each other and the times they live in, people trying to see through illusions to confront the truth of who they are.
