4: The Asiatic Epic by DR. ARNOLD BAKE
Reader, Denys Hawthorne Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERDON
From the highlands of Central Asia to the plain of Rajasthan, singers celebrate the epic exploits of their national heroes or such recent happenings as the revolt of the King of Nepal against the rule of the Rana prime ministers. The Turkish epics remind one of the songs of the bards in the Balkans, but styles change from people to people and from country to country.
