The Boudovskaya-Rusyn Texts

The following Rusyn folk stories were collected and translated by Elena Boudovskaya

Any unauthorized duplication or use is strictly forbidden.

Elena is a researcher based in Moscow, Russia. As part of her studies she spent several months visiting Rusyn villages in Zakarpats'ka interviewing elderly people and collecting their folk tales. These stories, passed down from generation to generation, illustrate the imagination of our people and provide an interesting link to our past.
These stories are part of an ongoing collection process.

These first two stories deal with husband problems - rather interesting.

(1) A Man Returning From The Dead To Visit His Wife.

(2) A Man Turning Into A Wolf

(3) Devils

(4) Wind Woman
