Songs of the Russian People By W. R. S. Ralston

Songs of the Russian People

W. R. S. Ralston


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 314 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1872.

Description

A treasure-trove of Slavic mythology, tradition, folklore and ethnography. There are plenty of songs, not only from Russia but every part of the Slavic region from Serbia to Siberia. The songs are used as a starting point for a wide-ranging discussion of pre-industrial Slavic peasant life, including weddings, funerals, witchcraft, demonology, games, riddles, and seasonal traditions. Also covered are the details of Russian pagan religion and mythology, with comparisons to related topics such as Vedic and Germanic mythology.
