Summary
  • Contains entries for authors, titles, national literatures, themes, and motifs in literature and folklore
  • "This encyclopedia examines the profound influence of folklore on literature. The more than 350 alphabetically arranged entries fall into four categories: writers and literary works that use folklore as a resource or source; concepts that make it easier to look at folklore and literature together; themes and characters that originated in oral literature but are also found in written literature; and scholars who have studied and contributed to the field of folklore and literature. The work concentrates on European and Western themes, including classical Greek and Roman. The introduction discusses the interest and connections between folklore and literature and ends with a bibliography".--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Titles", American Libraries, May 1999.
