Folklore and Story

A guide to research in folklore and story telling.

Introduction to Folklore Research

Warning! Doing truly in-depth research in folklore is still text-based using print resources. In addition, some of the standard tools for finding folk stories, myths, etc. are very specialized and require time and study. If you are engaged in serious research in the field, be prepared to delve into older publications and retrospective indexes.

This guide also applies to the study of mythology, fables, legends, and fairy tales.
