This is an authoritative, comprehensive and unique selection from the full range of Russian folk verse, from the byliny (heroic epics) of the Middle Ages to the chastushki (satirical quatrains) of today's Russia. Each page of the Russian text has an accurate but readable English prose translation, which will give the reader an insight into one of the richest and most varied, but least known, aspects of Russian culture.
