This introduction to Mongolian literature, both oral and written, from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century, provides a rare insight into the changing worldviews-from clan society to Soviet culture-of the Mongolian people. Translated by renown scholar Charles Bawden, the work is organized into Histories, Legends, Didactic literature, Epics, Shamanistic Incantations, Folk-tales, Myths, Sino-Mongolian Prose Literature, Lyrics and Other Verse, and Reminiscences, concluding with a modern short story. This highly important work, which makes the rich tradition of Mongolian literature available for the first time, will be essential reading for many years to come.Vom Verlag:
