Example text

So arises a structural hierarchy and unbroken chain of tales that is one of The Pañcatantra’s most striking features. The overall impression is neither of a rag-bag of folktale odds and ends, nor of somebody just preaching. We are dealing with a work of art, carefully finished and coherent. The only partial exception is the fifth book, whose frame-tale does not fully enclose its fables. x–xi). The framing tale of The Pañcatantra as a whole tells of King Amarashakt’s despair at the ignorant stupidity of his three sons.

He did not complete the work until he was staying with his newly wed wife in Tsarskoye Selo, outside St. Petersburg, in the late August of 1831. And although The Tale’s sources have not been completely charted — and perhaps will never be —, the ingredients which went into its lengthy incubation were clearly very heterogeneous. The Thousand and One Nights, the chapbook story Bova Korolevich (originally Bevis of Hampton), and Chaucer’s “Lawyer’s Tale” have all played a part, and there are even traces of several other texts by Pushkin himself, while folktale motifs such as “the three golden sons” and “the banished wife” (Chudesnye deti and Oklevetannaja zhena) are also in clear evidence.

What will captivate their imagination is rather the colourful and rapidly developing story itself, with its speaking animals, and their exciting or frightening or amusing adventures. In the story of The Moonlake, the most fascinating element is surely the resourcefulness with which the small hare stands up to the enormous king of the elephants. The only way he can do this is by resorting to a strategy which, if copied by a young prince on inheriting a royal crown, would mark him as a most cynically evil politician.
