The Russian Folktale’s World

Folktales are our oldest stories, and they distill a people’s character and experience in deceptively simple texts. Dr. Barbara Henry (University of Washington) discusses the principle types of Russian folktales and explores one of Russia’s most well-known tales, “The Magic Swan-Geese.” Henry is an associate professor in the department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at UW. She teaches courses on 19th and 20th century Russian literature and culture, Russian folktales, and Yiddish literature.
