About this title


"'Explorations in Philippine Folklore' is a major contribution to the study of folklore in the Philippines...These sparkling essays reflect remarkable variety, ranging from discussions of jeepney inscriptions to content analyses of ballads, epics, folktales, and legends. Moreover, the sophisticated discussion, informed by performance theory and feminist theory, found throughout the book sets this volume apart from nearly all previous investigations of Filipino folklore... Every serious student of the folklore of the Philippines should be required to read this stimulating and insightful set of essays." -Alan Dundes (University of California, Berkeley)
