Abstract

The article deals with the research of anthropomorphic figures which is related to the evil in folk tales. According to this our aims to pursue a typological analysis of the English and Georgian folk tales Our research based on Georgian and English folk tales of XX-XIX centuries as the object of research – Georgian folk tales the publishing house “Nakaduli”, Tbilisi 1976 year and the English folk tales collected by Joseph Jacobs http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/. The articles aimed to make a comparative-contrastive study of the anthropomorphic figures that are shown as evil faces in Georgian and English folk tales and it was discovered that throughout the study more similarities than differences were observed in both of the collections. It was also observed that Georgian and English folk tales represent universals expressed with the anthropomorphic figures of evil and deal with similar cultures. The article argues that anthropomorphic figures of evil in these folk tales result from the feeling of envy, jealousy, greed, dread or the struggle for power and superiority.
