What is Important to Folklore?

Motifs and Archetypes are What
Defines Folk Lore
• Folklore is derived from what has happened before
• And what will happen in the future. This is why we look
back at
• Some of the oldest stories to observe possible references in
current Literature.
• “Mircea eliade observes that the nineteenth-century novel
is “the great repository of degraded Myths,”


What creates folklore?
• “Q: Who are the folk?
A: We are the folk.
Everyone belongs to a folk group; most of
us belong to Many folk groups. “
• Folklore is essentially lore created by folks
and these stories are always unique in some


Why is folklore so unique?
• “folklore happens everyWhere. because everyone
experiences and lives folklore differently, it is

often difficult to confine the diversity and
fluidity of folklore into a set, rigid definition”.


What is folklore made up of?
• “folklore is, according to alan Dundes, all of
these things and more, besides:
Myths, legends, folktales, jokes, proverbs, riddles,
chants, charms, blessings, curses, oaths, insults,

retorts, taunts, teases, toasts, tongue-twisters, and
greeting and leave-taking forMulas”.


How is folklore so
“in reality, as one studies folklore they begin to see
how pervasive it really is, that folklore has much

to tell us about the common threads that weave
humanity together, and perhaps the best kept secret
of all: studying folklore is down-right fun. “


Folklore is fun but is it
• “a study of folklore also helps to fill in the
blank spots that a typical study
of literature, sociology, psychology, and art
often fails to address”.


Folklore is what it says it is, lore
of folks
• Folklore allows you to see stories or culture from the past and even
learn about your history.

• “looking at the lore of Mount shasta can tell us Much about our
local cultural heritage and how our past continues to shape us here
in Siskiyou County. Further, by examining our interesting present-day
folk responses to everything from the Ascended Masters to how Shasta
got its name, we can learn more about our community, and such
knowledge might well help us better see where we are likely to be


Is folklore only about past
• Folklore is indeed not limited to stories of the past
even fairytales and fables are modern. Folklore will
always be changing with the times as people change

and tell stories.

• “there is no doubt that What people think has happened
in history, and what they say to each other about
history, can effect the present and future”.
