9781330116968: The Myth of the Pent Cuckoo: A Study in Folklore (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Myth of the Pent Cuckoo: A Study in Folklore

The first purpose of this work includes a scientific enquiry into the meaning and value of the widespread story of the men who pent, or hedged in, the Cuckoo, which appears in the old "Tales of the Wise Men of Gotham" and is also familiar in several parts of the country at the present day.

Its further purpose is to give an account of a series of sites bearing the traditional name of "Cuckoo Pens" along the southern part of the Chiltern Hills and in the neighbouring districts. Fifteen such sites are known to me, and although I have made frequent enquiries I have not been able to hear of another; but probably there are several more. A description of each of the fifteen is given with more or less detail. In the majority of cases this is done from personal inspection. In the other cases it is from accounts contributed by friends, and to these I desire to offer an expression of thanks. As far as I have had opportunity of observing, the Cuckoo Pens do not appear in Tithe Awards or Enclosure Awards, but the designation survives only in popular parlance.
