Literary Analyses of the Danish, the Greenlandic, and the Turkish Stories Used in the "Folktale Project." Folktale: A Cross-Cultural, Interdisciplinary Study of the Experience of Literature. Paper 12.
Dollerup, Cay; And Others
As part of the Folktale project, which explores similarities and dissimilarities in the response to literature from and in different cultures, advanced undergraduate students in classes on literary interpretation or literary history analyzed a Danish, a Greenlandic, and a Turkish folk tale. Two male and two female students in classes on literary interpretation or literary history responded to the Danish story, "Per Smed's Whip." Four male and eight female students in a literary interpretation class discussed a Greenlandic tale, "The Barking Ones." A class of approximately 20 students of literature responded to the Turkish tale, "The Golden Apple." These analyses supplemented the reader responses obtained earlier in the folktale project by means of introspection studies and essay studies. (A list of 13 related papers and an overview of the Folktale project as of April, 1989 are attached.) (RS)
