Abstract:   (1107 Views)
This research has examined ten Turkmen fairy tales. The conclusions
of the study show that the contrast between good and evil is the most important mythical component of  Turkmen magical tales. The teenage son and daughter of the family represent the forces of good who confront the forces of evil to save a family member or to seek what is desirable on a tumultuous journey. Travel is the enriching element that brings the immature hero to maturity
. In most of the stories, the demon represents the evil and demonic force that disrupts the hero's work and the hero fights him in several stages and finally wins. In addition to demons, human anti-heroes such as stepmothers, siblings, and the evil old woman play the role of evil forces alone or as an auxiliary force. Both the forces of good and evil resort to magic as supernatural in advancing their goals.
