FROM GU??DHYA?S BR?HATKATHA TO SOMADEVA?S KATH?SAR?TSAG?RA THE LITERATURE OF INDIAN TALES

Abstract

Author(s): Yalç?n KAYALI

Indian culture, which draws attention with its collections of fairytales literature, contains a considerable part of the accumulation of the world fairy tales’ literature. The history of this accumulation goes back to the fairy-tale stories that betrayed the Vedas, which were thought to belong to 1500 BC and were regarded as the first written texts of Indo-Europe.Subsequently, the first Panchatantra, which is thought to have been compiled by Vishnusharman, and the first systematic literary example of the fable were put forward. Works such as Gu??dhya's Brihatkatha, Dashakum?raçarita (Ten Prince's Story), Simh?sanadv?trim?ik? (Thirty-Two Stories of the Throne), Shukasapatati (The Seventy Tales of the Parrot), Kathamahodadhi (Great Sea Stories) and Hitopadehasa (Useful Education) are examples of classical Indian fairytale collections only a few.The Brihatkatha of Gu??dhya, the subject of my work, has inspired many more works of Indian culture.Somadeva's Kath?saritsagara and Kshemendra's Brihatkath?mancari, which I think Brihatkatha left most deeply in his tracks, influenced many important tale compilations such as La Fontaine, Thomas Mann and Grimm Brothers, not just Indian cultures, it has a very special place.
