Chinese Fables and Folk Stories (Fables et histoires populaire chinoises) by Mary Hayes Davis,Chow-Leung Book Resume:
It requires much study of the Oriental mind to catch even brief glimpses of the secret of its mysterious charm. An open mind and the wisdom of great sympathy are conditions essential to making it at all possible. Contemplative, gentle, and metaphysical in their habit of thought, the Chinese have reflected profoundly and worked out many riddles of the universe in ways peculiarly their own. Realization of the value and need to us of a more definite knowledge of the mental processes of our Oriental brothers, increases wonderfully as one begins to comprehend the richness, depth, and beauty of their thought, ripened as it is by the hidden processes of evolution throughout the ages. To obtain literal translations from the mental storehouse of the Chinese has not been found easy of accomplishment; but it is a more difficult, and a most elusive task to attempt to translate their fancies, to see life itself as it appears from the Chinese point of view, and to retell these impressions without losing quite all of their color and charm. The "impressions," the "airy shapes" formed by the Oriental imagination, the life touches and secret graces of its fancy are at once the joy and despair of the one who attempts to record them. It has been an accepted belief of the world's best scholars that Chinese literature did not possess the fable, and chapters in interesting books have been written on this subject affirming its absence. Nevertheless, while studying the people, language, and literature of China it was the great pleasure of the writer to discover that the Chinese have many fables, a few of which are published in this book. As these stories, familiar in the home and school life of the children of China, show different phases of the character of a people in the very processes of formation, it is earnestly hoped that this presentation of them will help a little toward a better understanding and appreciation of Chinese character as a whole. (Il faut beaucoup d’étude de l’esprit oriental pour pouvoir saisir, même brièvement, le secret de son charme mystérieux. L'ouverture d'esprit et la sagesse d'une grande sympathie sont des conditions essentielles pour rendre cela possible. Contemplatif, doux et métaphysique dans leur habitude de penser, les chinois ont réfléchi profondément et élaboré de nombreuses énigmes de l'univers d'une manière qui leur est propre. La prise de conscience de la valeur et de la nécessité d'une connaissance plus précise des processus mentaux de nos frères orientaux augmente à mesure que l'on commence à comprendre la richesse, la profondeur et la beauté de leur pensée, mûries par les processus cachés de l'évolution à travers les âges. Obtenir des traductions littérales du dépôt mental des chinois n'a pas été trouvé facile à accomplir; mais c’est une tâche plus difficile, et plus difficile à réaliser que de tenter de traduire leurs fantaisies, de voir la vie elle-même telle qu’elle apparaît du point de vue de la Chine, et de revivre ces impressions sans perdre toute leur couleur et leur charme. Les "impressions", les "formes aériennes" formées par l'imagination orientale, les contacts de vie et les grâces secrètes de son imagination sont à la fois la joie et le désespoir de celui qui tente de les enregistrer. Les meilleurs spécialistes du monde pensent que la littérature chinoise ne possédait pas la fable, et des chapitres d'ouvrages intéressants ont été écrits sur ce sujet, affirmant ainsi son absence. Néanmoins, tout en étudiant le peuple, la langue et la littérature de Chine, l’écrivain a eu le grand plaisir de découvrir que les chinois possédaient de nombreuses fables, dont certaines sont publiées dans ce livre. Comme ces récits, familiers à la maison et à la vie scolaire des enfants de Chine, montrent les différentes phases du personnage d’un peuple dans le processus même de la formation, il est vivement espéré que cette présentation les aidera un peu à mieux compréhension et appréciation du caractère chinois dans son ensemble.

The Legends and Myths of Hawaii: The fables and folk-lore of a strange people by King of Hawaii David Kalakaua Book Resume:
The Legends and Myths of Hawaii is a collection of folk and ethnic tales written by Kalākaua, the last king of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. Although retelling myths and legends, the book is sort of an account of Hawaiian history until the times of Kalākaua. It reveals facts related to the waves of migration from Samoa and other places in Polynesia, and the interaction between them and the inhabitants of the Hawaii islands. It also recounts their wars and their political organization in addition to a brief look at the social organization.
The Legends and Myths of Hawaii by David Kalakaua Book Resume:
The legends following are of a group of sunny islands lying almost midway between Asia and America—a cluster of volcanic craters and coral-reefs, where the mountains are mantled in perpetual green and look down upon valleys of eternal spring; where for two-thirds of the year the trade-winds, sweeping down from the northwest coast of America and softened in their passage southward, dally with the stately cocoas and spreading palms, and mingle their cooling breath with the ever-living fragrance of fruit and blossom. Deeply embosomed in the silent wastes of the broad Pacific, with no habitable land nearer than two thousand miles, these islands greet the eye of the approaching mariner like a shadowy paradise, suddenly lifted from the blue depths by the malicious spirits of the world of waters, either to lure him to his destruction or disappear as he drops his anchor by the enchanted shore. The legends are of a little archipelago which was unknown to the civilized world until the closing years of the last century, and of a people who for many centuries exchanged no word or product with the rest of mankind; who had lost all knowledge, save the little retained by the dreamiest of legends, of the great world beyond their island home; whose origin may be traced to the ancient Cushites of Arabia, and whose legends repeat the story of the Jewish genesis; who developed and passed through an age of chivalry somewhat more barbarous, perhaps, but scarcely less affluent in deeds of enterprise and valor than that which characterized the contemporaneous races of the continental world; whose chiefs and priests claimed kinship with the gods, and step by step told back their lineage not only to him who rode the floods, but to the sinning pair whose re-entrance to the forfeited joys of Paradise was prevented by the large, white bird of Kane; who fought without shields and went to their death without fear; whose implements of war and industry were of wood, stone and bone, yet who erected great temples to their gods, and constructed barges and canoes which they navigated by the stars; who peopled the elements with spirits, reverenced the priesthood, bowed to the revelations of their prophets, and submitted without complaint to the oppressions of the tabu; who observed the rite of circumcision, built places of refuge after the manner of the ancient Israelites, and held sacred the religious legends of the priests and chronological meles of the chiefs. As the mind reverts to the past of the Hawaiian group, and dwells for a moment upon the shadowy history of its people, mighty forms rise and disappear—men of the stature of eight or nine feet, crowned with helmets of feathers and bearing spears thirty feet in length. Such men were Kiha, and Liloa, and Umi, and Lono, all kings of Hawaii during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries; and little less in bulk and none the less in valor was the great Kamehameha, who conquered and consolidated the several islands under one government, and died as late as 1819. And beside Umi, whose life was a romance, stands his humble friend Maukaleoleo, who, with his feet upon the ground, could reach the cocoanuts of standing trees; and back of him in the past is seen Kana, the son of Hina, whose height was measured by paces.

Roman Legends: A Collection of the Fables and Folk-lore of Rome by R. H. Busk Book Resume:
At another time one would have to spend hours in listening to detached incidents altogether lacking a thread to connect them, or stories of which the point had been so completely lost that they could only have been made available by means of a reconstruction too integral to be honestly attempted. As, e.g., ‘Oh yes! I know a story of an enchantress who had a gown which made her invisible, and a pair of boots which would carry her a thousand miles without walking, but I quite forget what she did with them.’ Or else it might be, ‘I knew a story of a king whose wife had been fatata (subjected to magic influence), and maligned by her mother-in-law while the king was gone to the wars; but that’s all I remember, except that in the end the queen was rehabilitated, and the mother-in-law punished’—incidents of stories recurring in every collection, but tantalisingly lacking all means of further particular identification with any. Sometimes, too, it would be only a title that could be recalled, and nothing more, as in the case of a certain ‘Uccello Biverde,’ which I have been several times assured is ‘a most beautiful story,’ but I have never yet succeeded in meeting with any one who could supply the narrative. I have further felt called sometimes to exercise a difficult forbearance in withholding some specimens which at first promised to afford singular instances of interchanged episodes, but which there afterwards appeared reason to conclude were merely jumbled in the bad memory of the narrator, and had, therefore, no individual interest, but were rather calculated to mislead. One of my worst disappointments was the case of a very old woman, who, I am assured, knows more of such things than anyone in the world, but whom nothing can induce to repeat them now. She has grown so toothless and tremulous and inconsecutive, that it is not easy to understand her; but I think her arguments are not difficult to appreciate in the following way,—that having had a long run of weary bad fortune, she had rather not dwell on stories where things turned out as one could wish to have them. She wants to go to heaven, she says, and so she believes in God, and whatever else she mustbelieve; but for anything more, for special interpositions of Providence, and anything one is not obliged to believe, she had rather say nothing about all that. ‘But don’t tell them then as if you believed them; tell them only as a pastime; just to oblige me.’ I thought I had moved her, but the utmost she would yield was to promise to think about it before I came again: and when I came again she was as rigid as ever. It is vexatious to think that a vast store is going to the grave with her under one’s very eyes and that one cannot touch it.
