"Peter Tokofsky has provided English readers with a superb translation of one of the most important books on folktales." -- Wolfgang Mieder

This classic work, first published in 1956, is now available in English. Along with LA1/4thi's The European Folktale and Propp's The Morphology of the Folktale, RAhrich's MArchen und Wirklichkeit is considered a key text in folklore scholarship.
