Description

Based upon many years of browsing in the fascinating field of traditional balladry, this little book starts with the popular ballad as we have it exhibited in Child's great collection and works forward in time to modern instances and contemporary analogies, with all possible stress on music as an essential part of ballads. The general discussion is followed by a small sheaf of surviving South Carolina ballads, fourteen in all, with thirty-seven variants and eleven tunes. It will be found a charming addition to our many collections of folk-songs.
