Folktales for Children: Literature or Lore? by Katharyn W Crabbe( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In addition to the documentation, annotation, and provision of contextual information that the authentic translation of folklore materials demands, folk stories that are intended for children should reflect the basic mythic patterns of good literature in their translated structure. The aims in translating such stories for children are to recreate the original with a respect for its cultural context, provide background information that explains motivation and behavior, construct a dramatic context for the nonverbal communication on both sides of an issue, organize the tale so that it progresses naturally and with credibility and authority, and make the story vital without compromising its vision of how the world works.
