Indeed, wonder-tale heroines regularly incorporate, or otherwise inherit, the life juice of their elders. In both cases, variation and the authors’ interpretations go hand in hand and elicit fresh readings. This general explanation is still in force, although, as I think each branch of folk-lore should be studied separately, endeavouring to prove the origin of each independently from the other; afterwards we may try to ascertain the relationship which exists between each.

Nancy Canepa Strindberg, August (1849–1912) Like many other Nordic playwrights of the late nineteenth century, the Swedish author August Strindberg was strongly influenced by the contemporary beliefs that the most appropriate material for plays was national history and folktales.

However, differently from legends and epics, they usually do not specifically mention religion and actual places, people, and events.

So when one appeared in the yard of my tavern, I was not of a mind to give him room for the night. Because of this, the history of their development is necessarily obscure and blurred. [30] Fairy tales appear, now and again, in written literature throughout literate cultures, as in The Golden Ass, which includes Cupid and Psyche ( Roman, 100–200 AD), [31] or the Panchatantra ( India 3rd century BCE), [31] but it is unknown to what extent these reflect the actual folk tales even of their own time.

When one explores the significance of the concluding reference to the sun, moon, and stars in conjunction with that of the mystic rose and the perfect pearl circle in terms of Crawford's oeuvre, the sentimentality is mitigated be the widening implication of the symbolism.
