The Cyclops in Basque Myth

The Cyclops in Basque Myth

Ratings: (0)|Views: 25|Likes:
Although universally known as the Tártaro in northern Spain, the Cyclops has been the subject of quite a few myths in that part of the country. The legends are told in the area of País Vasco , a region unconquered by any power since its creation and where the locals know themselves as Euskaldunak . These men and women are fiercely independent and boast to have been able to maintain said right since time immemorial.
It is in this land that the legends of the Tártaro were developed. The legends I write of are based on a book published in 1877 and which states that at the time, the very stories told have rarely been put down to writing. The stories have been largely passed down verbally, preserving their original names and sacred meaning from generation to generation of pastores of the highlands of the Basque Country.
