BARZAZ BREIZ PDF

Significance[ edit ] The collection was published in the original Breton language with a French translation. It achieved a wide distribution, as the Romantic generation in France that "discovered" the Basque language was beginning to be curious about all the submerged cultures of Europe and the pagan survivals just under the surface of folk Catholicism. The Barzaz Breiz brought Breton folk culture for the first time into European awareness. One of the oldest of the collected songs was the legend of Ys.

It achieved a wide distribution, as the Romantic generation in France that "discovered" the Basque language was beginning to be curious about all the submerged cultures of Europe and the pagan survivals just under the surface of folk Catholicism. The Barzaz Breiz brought Breton folk culture for the first time into European awareness. One of the oldest of the collected songs was the legend of Ys. This was one of the first attempts to collect and print Breton traditional music, except hymns.

Until this publication the so-called "matter of Brittany" Breton legends was known only from references to some legends in French language Romances of the 13th and 14th centuries, in which much of the culture was also transformed to suit Gallic hearers.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part collects ballads about historical legends and heroic deeds of Breton leaders, including Nominoe , Erispoe and the warriors of the Combat of the Thirty.

The second part records local culture, concentrating on religious festivals and seasonal events. At the Congress of the Breton Association at Saint-Brieuc , he argued that the songs had been completely manufactured in the manner of MacPherson, because, he said, he had never himself met with ballads in such elegant Breton and free of borrowed French words. The dispute continued into the twentieth century. Reprinted in , and, at Didier et Cie, , the book was then published in in Paris.

The edition contained some of the original melodies "harmonized by Mrs. Tom Taylor", but omitted some of the ballads. The edition was subsequently reprinted many times to the present day by the academic library Perrin, not counting the many English translations Taylor, Fleay In a new edition appeared in pocket-sized format.

In , Coop Breizh published a pocket version of the book in French without the Breton text. The main merit is that he put Breton and French versions of each poem together ensuring a very high readability.
