Excerpt from Readings in Folk-Lore: Short Studies in the Mythology of America, Great Britain, the Norse Countries, Germany, India, Syria, Egypt, and Persia; With Selections From the Standard Literature Relating to the Same
This book is intended as a companion volume to the Hi... storical Readings, which has proved so popular as a book of culture for teachers and students; and as the latter is a volume of prose and of recorded fact, this is a book of poems and of popular beliefs.
The myths of legend and of pure fable, whether related to false religions or otherwise, are often of great interest to the student and the general reader. So interwoven are the faith and the folk-lore of a people with its literature and art that an acquaintance with its mythology is necessary to an understanding of its higher expressions of thought and feel ing. Such knowledge is highly essential to the teacher.
