Short annotation
A synthesis and reconstruction of some prominent themes of the Proto-Indo-European myth is presented in context of the Slavic-Jarilo folklore cycle. A contemporary, fantasy style is chosen for the literary form of this reconstruction.

Long annotation
In this offered reconstruction of the Slavic myth about Jarilo and Marzanna, a comparative method is used, where lost fragments of one ethnic myth are reconstructed with the use of similar myths that were preserved, relating to Indo-European ethnic mythological traditions. Greco-Roman, Iranian, Indian Vedic, Celtic, Germanic mythical narratives, viewed in context of the common, original Proto-Indo-European tradition, allow us to look at this well-known, but highly fragmented myth from a new, more integral prospective.
