FOLK LEGENDS AND FOLK-TALES FROM THE LEGACY OF LJUDEVIT GAJ

In the legacy of Ljudevit Gaj {1890-1872}, the promoter of Croatian national revival, so called Ilirski pokret, which is kept in University Library of Zagreb, by the side of other scripts there is a collection of folklore records, predominantly comprising folk-songs, folk-tales and proverbs, gathered for the most part by Gaj himself In this contribution we are publishing Gaj-s records of folk legends and folktales the folk-songs will be published in the next volume of the annual »Narodna umjetnost*. The folk legends relate to the past of the locality Krapina, mostly narrating about the struggles of the inhabitants of Krapina for the recognition of their old privileges against the encroachments of feudal lords. So they talk about the secret keeping of old documents in a hollow trunk, about the deputations to the king, about the violences commited to »purgari« and a strong hero protector, then about the Turks, fays etc. In addition we also publish a Gaj-s record of the tale about the step-mother and the step-daughter AaTh 480 + 510A. All texts are in old *kajkavština« and written in old orthography, which gives them, beside an adequate style of narrating, a special charm and attractiveness.

In the introducing comment by M. Bošković-Stulli these oral traditions are confronted with the corresponding historical events in an effort to demonstrate, how the historical truth in these texts is interweaved and imbued with imagination and folk tradition. Besides, here is presented Gaj-s general attitude towards the traditions of his country, specially in connection with the famous tradition about the brothers Ceh, Leh and Meh as founders of Krapina.
