Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Arab Folktales from Palestine and lsrael, a collection of twenty-eight tales gathered in Palestine and Israel and one of Patai's last books, Patai explores this rich cultural tradition. He studies tales from three separate times: those recorded by a German scholar in 1910-11, those read over Jerusalem Radio in the winter of 1946-47, and those recorded by the Israeli scholar Yoel Perez in 1982-84.<P>Providing insight into Arab culture, Patai offers extensive notes and commentary on particular Arabic phrases and images, as well as the ways of speaking and thinking found among the Arab population, especially the Bedouins, in Palestine and lsrael. Patai also places the stories in the context of global folktales, and traces the transformations in the art of storytelling.
