Summary

Summary

This first paperback edition of the seminal work by the Swiss scholar Max Lüthi will be welcomed by folklorists for its informative survey of the various ways in which fairytales and related genres (local legends and saints' lives) may be read.

Lüthi's lucid and intelligent book is refreshingly welcome." --Sewanee Review
