Teaching ancient folklore

Ingemark, Dominic LU and Asplund Ingemark, Camilla (2007) In Classical Journal 102(3). p.279-289
Abstract
Finely wrought pieces of storytelling, pithy sayings and clever riddles constituting oral traditions often labelled “verbal art” abound in ancient texts. Yet while it has long been recognised that such traditions—folklore—can be found in the Homeric poems, it is less well known that they have also been incorporated into many other types of texts. This paper aims to offer a concise description of how a course in ancient folklore highlighting the wealth of oral traditions available to us can be structured, focusing on how these traditions reflect ancient societies.
