Summary:"Folklore--the inherently creative expression, transmission, and performance of cultural traditions--has always provided a deep well of material for writers, musicians, and artists of all sorts. Folklorists usually employ descriptive and analytical prose, but they, like scholars in other social sciences, have increasingly sought new, creative and reflexive modes of discourse.

This collection of creative writing grounded in folklore and its study brings together some of the best examples of such writing."--Publisher's description
