Nourali le Preux et Marghoumon-Péri

Chantefable lyrique ouzbèque
bilingual Uzbek-French

Translation: Rémy Dor

After seeing Marghoumon in a dream, Nourali embarks on a quest to find her. He must go through perils, struggles, and challenges before finding and bringing her back to the land of their fathers with their newborn son ! Fozil Yo‘ldashoghli (1872-1955) is the most famous bard of the Ecole de Chant of Bulunghur in Uzbekistan. A great poet of the Soviet era, who lived during the transition from a traditional society to modern world, Fozil is today almost entirely forgotten despite being an enormously talented creator and interpreter. Rémy Dor managed to deliver the reader an excellent work: an informative introduction first situates the work in history, and then the text - thanks to a translation both innovative and loyal - reveals itself in all its vivacity and spice.
