North American Indian Mythology and Folklore for Secondary School Students

North American Indian Mythology and Folklore for Secondary School Students

Date: January 1970
Creator: Jackson, Sarah
Description: Through a study of North American Indian folklore and mythology, the non-Indian can at last begin to know the Indian with whom he has shared a continent and to find out something of his religion, traditions, history, humor, and tribal peculiarities. The approach to this study through motifs, already familiar to the students from other literature, offers a practical approach and one that can be adapted to classroom use, perhaps either in the study of myth, the study of literary types, the study of literature per se, or perhaps in the study of cultural differences.

Date: August 1970
Creator: Moran, Ethel Ruth
Description: This approach to Unamuno does not propose to deny the fact that he was a polemicist, a poet, a teacher, and a philosopher more than he was a writer of fiction or an entertainer. What is intended is to point out to the average reader in simple terms something of the general signification and method in Unamuno's attempt at the art of prose fiction--at least as it appears in translation.

Finally, Faulkner's view of the New South will be examined.
