HATTO, A.T. [ED.],
The Memorial Feast the Memorial Feast for Kokotoy-Khan (Kokotoydun Asi): A Kirghiz Epic Poem
. [London Oriental Series Vol.33]. Oxford, 1977; xvi, 283pp.; orig. cl. d.w.; short tears in d.w. Apart from the tears in the d.w. an excellent copy, warmly inscribed by the editor in 1977. Edited for the first time from a copy of the unique manuscript, with translation and commentary. An edition and translation of, along with extensive commentary on, the earliest Kirghiz oral traditional epic extant, a poem which "bears witness to a pithy and at times ornate bardic style with well-worn, beautifully structured epithets and other formulae.." (p. 90). Demonstrates that the existing manuscript is a fair copy of a field record made by Valikhanov, documents parallel passages, and includes (Appendix 8, pp. 269-70) remarks by Radlov on oral performance and improvisation. Notes also Parry's debt to Kirghiz oral poetry and to Radlov (1885) in particular. ? Arthur Thomas Hatto, F. B. A. was born in London in 1910 and was educated at Dulwich College (1923-27) and King?s College, London (1927-32). While Lektor für Englisch at the University of Bern he made his edition of a pre-Lutheran German translation of the Apocalypse, for which he was awarded the M. A. with Distinction of London University (1934). From an Assistant Lectureship in German at King?s College (1939), he was appointed Reader (1946), then Professor of German Language and Literature in the University of London (1953) until his retirement (1977). He served as a Governor at the School of Oriental and African Studies, gave the Foundation Day Lecture there (Shamanism and Epic Poetry in Northern Asia, 1970) and was elected an Honorary Fellow (1981). [ DL 3/5].
