Field Assignment 2: Legend and Belief Assignment 2 : Comparative analysis of a legend. 1. Document a variant of a legend similar to the legends we encountered in class (urban legends, ghosts, witches, faires/other supernatural creatures, historical heroes). · The assignment works best if you report your conversation with another person. · (Optional expansion for an outstanding grade: record and transcribe an interview that you quote, word for word, in the annotation, Part #2). · You may also write the story down from memory, or record yourself retelling it to a camera or audio recorded – but remember, you are studying somebody else’s beliefs about a legend they told, not you and your own beliefs. · Before annotating, write a short summary of the text, and how you documented it. 2. Annotate this variant (125-250 words): · Text : Point out significant motif numbers from the Motif-Index of Folk Literature · (Links to an external site.) · ; note how a motif is adapted to include people, places and things in the performers context. · Variants: Compare your text to variants encountered in class reading assignments, or in other chapters of our main “archive,” the e-book, Scandinavian Folk Belief and Legend · (Links to an external site.) · . Online variants can also be useful, but remember that you do not know anything about the actual beliefs and worldviews of anonymous online legend-tellers. · Texture : Note traditional patterns; comment on performance style. · Context : connect the text to its tradition (the storytelling that happened before or after your text), its performer & performers repertoire, and audience & their beliefs . · You may include comparative notes, engaging examples from Module Three. Privacy: Only two people will see your work: Your teacher, and one student peer-reviewer. Your privacy and creative work is protected: · It is illegal for anybody to download or share your work outside of this class, without your written permission. Previous Next
