Kate Seredy provides us with a more romanticized view of Hun ascendancy under Attila in the form of local Hungarian lore which typecasts him as a founding father of the Hungarian people. Seredy provides a mousakka of fact and fiction; ancient prophecies and ethnocentric battles to immerse the reader in a tale of prophecy and its realization.

Seredy avoids all the tellings of Lord of The Rings which emerges as a somewhat overdone hyperbole in comparison to 'The White Stag.' This might be a book with too much archaic language for young readers, but I thoroughly enjoyed it as a product of the hero and historical genre. ( )

Now that I’ve read it once, I feel like I need to read it again to give the book a fair evaluation. (But I don't really want to read it again, so... ay, there's the rub.) I spent the first half of the book struggling to find a direction. Ah, the river. Ah, the trees. Ah, the wind. The beauty that surrounds us, and the visions… I'm not a poetic person, and I know this. I know there's probably great crafting and art in those words, but I don't see it. All I really saw was: Psych! This is leading up to the birth and life of Attila the Hun. And he’s an a-okay guy! I didn't know anything about this book when I read it, so I may have been better served if I'd at least checked the back cover first. I'm too literal a person, and so reading it was a trip. ( )

This book is incredibly deserving of its 1938 Newbery Medal. It's brilliant. Though it appears to be a children's book, the style is a mature blend of the epic style of Virgil, the wide story arc of the Old Testament, and the legends of the Huns. The prose reads like poetry, with descriptions that modern authors can only dream of. And the illustrations are simply amazing. This is a story to aspire to, but also a story to treasure. It yearns to be read aloud.
That's all I can say, and my words are woefully inadequate. The White Stag leaves me with a sense of awe. ( )

I read this shortly after finishing "The Historian," by Elizabeth Kostova, a novel about Dracula (in this library). I wondered if Seredy would mention Dracula, Dragons, Vampires, etc., since the Carpathians and Transylvania are right in the middle of that whole myth (is it a myth?). Anyway, no mention is made except for where on page 86, line 7, she refers to the Hunnic horde as a "dragon," as it emerges from the 'Pasul Oituz,' into Transylvania. I suppose, given the geography, she could not possibly avoid referring to the dragon somewhere. This is quite an interesting setting of the Myth of the origin of Hungary (or 'Magyar Orszag'), its founding. I imagine this myth is based on Hungarian folklore, but it does seem somewhat biased toward Christianity. Seredy ends her tale before the Huns (Atilla) conquered Rome and before the invasion of the Magyars into Eastern Europe. The tale is definitely evocative of mythical themes (in the same way as Wagner's operas); the text itself seems to be written with middle-school students as an audience. I will give it: ( )

I think I expected more modern storytelling, this felt more like a mythic bard but it was stirring and well-written and I ended up enjoying it, even if I didn't know the storyline and didn't follow it as well.
