Volume 6 presents tales classified 850-999, which describe the travails of young people who are seeking happiness and love. They portray acts of fate, prophecy, and even divine justice, in a village context of social misery, folk tradition, the aggravations of family life, and the heartaches of the lovelorn. J.V. Haney's extensive introduction and annotations explain the structure of the tales, their place in the A-T system and in folklore studies, and the specifics of their Russian provenance.
