The mythical "Battle of Blue Water"

Gustynsky chronicle

Nicholas Zharkikh

or Myth in the period of withered leaves

Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version

Stryjkowski, as we have seen, shook all pears from a tree called "the Battle of Blue Water", leaving his successors only to sweep away withered leaves.

Gustynsky chronicle, written approximately in the 1620s, provide a very small food for us.

Thus, Gustynsky chronicle fully justifies its reputation as a late compilation text. Its posts are highly distorted borrowings from ancient sources or inventions of own production (Prince Fedor). In the case of "Battle of Blue Water" is completely dependent on the texts discussed above. The author of the annals did not had poetic talent Stryjkowski and offered us dry, little edible, withered leaves.
