The Ballad of Forgotten Years
By (author) Abish Kekilbayev
Ballad of Forgotten Years by Abish Kekilbayev
Book DescriptionHere is a tale of savage retribution, of torture and hostage-taking between the feuding Kazakhs and Turkmen, of crude chieftainly 'honour' and vengeance. The single redemptive theme is that of music - specifically the lute - in the hands of a young Turkman heir to the chieftaincy, Daulet, who strives to end the vendetta by the beauty of his art. The consequences of Daulet's endeavour and sublime gift are gruesome. Yet in the end this is a story with a powerful moral.
