Summary expansion
  • "This book shows how folklore magic, miracles, and tales of enchanted princesses and genial giants is still alive and well in the modern mass media.... contains a wealth of facts and observations with which to conjure." Journal of Communication"Dégh brings her decades of expertise in folk narrative to bear in this well-researched, provocative study of the interrelationship between traditional processes of folk narrative performances and modern mass media.... Highly recommended..." Choice"Spanning folk cultural developments as old as feudalism and as new as today's TV ad, American Folklore and the Mass Media demonstrates how vital folklore remains, how often it absorbs rather than being absorbed by the most dramatic technological innovations and social realignments." Carl Lindahl"... all six essays are meaty and informative contributions to vital folkloric issues..." Contemporary Legend
