Folktales and fairy tales : traditions and texts from around the world / edited by Anne E. Duggan and Donald Haase, with Helen J. Callow.

Contributor(s): Duggan, Anne E, 1967- | Haase, Donald | Callow, Helen.
Publisher: Santa Barbara, California : Greenwood, an Imprint of ABC-CLIO, [2016]Edition: Second Edition.Description: 4 volumes, 1,196 pages ; 40 cm.Content type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9781610692533 (alk. paper); 9781610692540.Subject(s): Tales | Fairy talesDDC classification: 398.2 Summary: Folktales and fairy tales have long played an important role in cultures around the world. They pass customs and lore from generation to generation, provide insights into the peoples who created them, and offer inspiration to creative artists working in media that now include television, film, manga, photography, and computer games. This second, expanded edition of an award-winning reference will help students and teachers as well as storytellers, writers, and creative artists delve into this enchanting world and keep pace with its past and its many new facets. Alphabetically organized and global in scope, the work is the only multivolume reference in English to offer encyclopedic coverage of this subject matter. The four-volume collection covers national, cultural, regional, and linguistic traditions from around the world as well as motifs, themes, characters, and tale types. Writers and illustrators are included as are filmmakers and composers-and, of course, the tales themselves. The expert entries within volumes 1 through 3 are based on the latest research and developments while the contents of volume 4 comprises tales and texts. While most books either present readers with tales from certain countries or cultures or with thematic entries, this encyclopedia stands alone in that it does both, making it a truly unique, one-stop resource.
