Gender and Sexuality in Pre-Industrial Society: Erotic Riddles
Enlarged version of a paper presented at the l0th Congress of the International Society for Folk Narrative Research in Innsbruck, July 1992. I am grateful to Dr D. E. Weston for help with translation and language questions.
Fabula is an international medium of discussion for all issues relevant to historical and comparative folk narrative research. The article section deals with the study of popular narrative tradition in its various forms (folktales, legends, jokes and anecdotes, exempla, fables, ballads, pictorial media, contemporary genres, etc.) and with the interrelationship between oral and literary traditions.
