A study of the folklore and mythology of native Americans, Africans, Australians, Polynesians, and the early tribal cultures of Europe and Asia—Celtic, German, and Siberian—in an attempt to define the nature and content of the literary impulse in preliterate cultures, and to identify the themes that survive in written texts of the western classical and medieval periods.
