Description:
Of all texts in this collection, this classic story of the hero Pusung perhaps demonstrates best the incomparable literary style of its raconteur: the stark simplicity of the short, curt sentences, the masterful pacing to heighten suspense, the doublets and dramatic dialogue, the irony. The theme is classic as well: once again a poor, powerless boy defeats a richer, stronger adversary by guessing a clever riddle.
