This work presents a substantial sampling of the brilliant folklorists whose works deserve the attention of all students of the history of modern thought. Among those whose writings are represented are Andrew Lang, Edwin Sidney Hartland, George Laurence Gomme, Alfred Nutt, Max Müller, Edward Clodd, and Joseph Jacobs. The subjects they discuss range from the origin and dispersion of the Aryans, through the mythopoeic world view view of early man, to the animistic philosophy of savages and the survivals of primitive belief among peasants. The work is a companion volume to Professor Dorson's The British Folklorists.
