Abstract

The first presentation of Ancient Folklore as a unified discipline for some eighty years: brings together issues traditionally diffused through ancient religion, myth, anthropology and other areas; sets out to evaluate recently emergent methodologies, championing Aarne-Thompson against Propp; and sets out to bridge the gap between classicists with no folklore and folklorists with no classics. Presents folklore as an ‘or-so-they-say’ subject, a formula which usefully cuts across the many competing definitions based on disciplinary presuppositions.
