Description

Folklore of Bengal provides a holistic account of rich and assorted tradition of folk art, oral literature, mythos and mythology, religion and magic, fairs and festivals, customs and social milieu of the province. Samples of folk songs, folk tales and riddles add value to the book, which has been thoroughly revised by Srirang Jha.

Folklore is a very difficult subject to write a book on within a given limit, and on a given plan-especially when it concerns a complex culture like the Bengali. Moreover, its study covers ka wide range of different subjects of diverse nature sometimes absolutely not related to each other like physical anthropology and myths, primitive psychology and ethnomusicology and so on.
