From Dalim Kumar, the prince who matches his wits against a female demon to save his brothers, to Fox, the Schoolteacher, a wily fox whose evil deeds lead to his downfall, to Neelkamal and Lalkamal, and many more—these fairy tales have been passed down through generations in Bengal. An enlarged and updated edition of The Winged Horse: Fairy Tales from Bengal (OUP 1997) with freshly translated and new stories and evocative line drawings, the book conveys the true spirit of grandmother’s yarns, with magic mountains, imaginary birds, and fearsome demons rubbing shoulders with real-life owls, monkeys, snakes, and humans.
