Abstract:

Vladimir IA. Propps recently discovered analysis of fairy tales caused considerable excitement among folklorists. His analysis opposes the historical-geographical method of the so-called Finnish school, which is still one of the leading trends in folklore scholarship. This report attempts to confront Propps analysis with the concept of the tale-type which lies at the basis of the work of the Finnish school. Author
