Abstract

SHIBIL Radka was standing at the gates, up came Mustafa ... - Folk-song. Shibil, the terrible brigand, sought by guards and watch 'neath tree and rock, was coming down from the mountains and going to give himself up. Tomorrow this piece of news would be heard everywhere; who would believe it! Shibil took little reckon- ing of that. He was in a hurry and was thinking of other things. He was thinking how, a month or two ago, from the high peaks of the Blue Rocks, where, amidst the nests of the eagles, he too had his brigand's nest, he saw women coming along the road below. The molestation of women was not among the brigands' rules, nor was there room for women in the heart of a brigand. But Shibil had broken many laws, and no longer knew, or wanted to know, what was sin and what was not. "Women here, amid the Djendem," thought he to himself, "that's good loot as well!" And up he got, not in the least concerned as to where curiosity might lead him. The brigands set off after him, laughing and their teeth gleaming like those of hungry wolves. They dropped
