Episode 19: What is a legend?

Folklore & Fiction

Mar 8 2022 • 17 mins

This episode of the Folklore & Fiction podcast was first published as a newsletter in March 2019. In it, I'll be introducing the legend genre with help from scholars Linda Dégh and others, contributions from the Memorial University of Newfoundland Folklore Archive, and a wee chunk of fiction by Patrick Rothfuss.
