Contes and Legendes populaires du Maroc

by Doctoresse Legey

"I collected all these tales in Marrakesh. More fortunate than many folklorists who had to ask intermediaries, I collected them directly in the main harems of Marrakesh, on Jâma ‘el-Fna square, with public storytellers or at my surgery, where Si El Hasan or Lalla ‘Abbouch came to sit and talk. I transcribed these tales in French, as soon as they were told to me and then, to be absolutely sure not to have misinterpreted, nor forgotten any particular expression, I would tell them myself in Arabic to my storytellers. So I can assert that the version I give is as closely related as possible to the tale I heard." - D. LÉGEY
