"Gitutyun" Publishing House, NAS RA, Yerevan, 2016, 462 p. (in Armenian).
The monograph of Tamar Hayrapetyan is devoted to the study of Armenian folktales and epic heritage. It tries to reveal the hidden power of the subconscious, historiographical traces, symbol indicators and archetypes in different layers of verbal and non-verbal material both in Armenian folktales and Armenian epic heritage.
The research is aimed at studying national and cultural ideas, symbol indicators, as well as allegoric perception of Armenian folktales and epic compositions. The systematized study of ritual, religious and mythical features of Armenian archaic tales collected and published from the second half of the 19th century is urgent for the research of Armenian folktales and epic traditional compositions.
