Interpreting Legend : Danish Storytellers and their Repertoires, Hardback Book

Interpreting Legend : Danish Storytellers and their Repertoires Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Folklore series


This book, first published in 1994, sets 'repertoire against raconteur' in order to explore one of the world's largest collections of folk literature.

The author's findings, and his creative and synthetic methodologies, enhance greatly our understanding of the world of the legend, and especially the basic question of 'Who tells what to whom in the form of a legend and why?' This work is an in-depth exploration of rural Denmark, and provides us with an excellent vantage point from which to understand legends in their cultural contexts and within the lives of their tellers.
