American Folk Legend: A Symposium.
Hand, Wayland D., Ed.
The proceedings of the UCLA Conference on American folk legend are the subject of these 14 papers. Areas of discussion include matters of definition, classification, structure and style, historical perspective, socio-psychological values, certain aspects of saints' legends in the Pennsylvania-German country, comparison of legendary and balladic treatments of the same historical event, and Hispanic and Latin American legendary materials. It is evident from the conference that American legend studies are still in their infancy. (Editor/CK)
