Understanding the importance of saving
The terms myth, folklore, legend and fairy tale, don't mean the same thing.
Although they've all stood the test of time, each type represents a distinct reader experience and answer some of life's fundamental questions.
A myth may attempt to answer some fundamental question in life, such as the origins of the world. A myth can also aim to explain mysteries or cultural traditions.
Cultures often have their own versions of common myths. One common myth found in many cultures is that of a great flood.
Folklore involves fictional tales about people or animals. Superstitions and beliefs are elements in the folklore tradition.
Folktales describe how the main character dealt with everyday life events, often involving a crisis or conflict. These stories can teach people how to cope with life.
Figures such as King Arthur, Blackbeard, and Robin Hood are legends - a story that is claimed to be historical but is without substantiation.
Legend also refers to anything of lasting importance or fame. The story is told orally but continues to evolve with time. Masterpieces such as the Greek Homeric Poems (The Iliad and The Odyssey) started as legends and were later retold in epic poems.
A fairy tale often involves fairies, giants, dragons, elves, goblins, dwarves, and other forces.
Fairy tales were not written for children, and the endings were often miserable. In recent years, old fairy tales like Snow White, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast have been changed and "Disneyfied" to appeal to kids.
