The adventure of existence of Turkish nation which immortalized life styles, customs, traditions and beliefs by assimilating in folk narratives is being perpetuated in the cultural memory from the past to the present. In this regard, the narrations of which eternised centuries’ experience, knowledge and etiquette in oral tradition by writing include quite rich symbols and themes.
