The Scandinavian Magic Tale and Narrative Folklore: A Study in Genres, Themes, and Sources
This book is based on and arises from from decades of dedicated teaching by a master of the trade. Capturing engaging classroom style, the text is highly readable and conversational while also being based on solid scholarship. The book invites audiences of all types-students, fellow folklore instructors, interested general readers-to share the author's own unmistakable enthusiasm for the stories he tells and for whose necessity he persuasively argues.
