Descripción Hardcover. Condición: Fine. 154 pp., bibliography. The Tales of the Ploughwoman is a selection of folk narratives from Galicia in Northwest Spain. Both tales of wonder, realistic tales, funny stories, legends and jokes are clear exponents of woman s natural supremacy. It is due neither to poetic fiction nor female wishful thinking when the woman in Galician tales is the heir of the kingdom and the heroine who can overcome all obstacles. Women appear in active heroe roles, as mother and ruler, as fairy or witch, while men constantly appear as victims, villains or clownish heroes. This is all the natural order in accordance with the cultural and economic female dominance that prevailed until very recently in those parts of rural Spain, as described in The World of the Ploughwoman (FFC 254). Over half of the tales are published here for the first time. They were collected by the author or by her husband, Gustav Henningsen, during their folkloristic fieldwork in Galicia respectively in the 1960s and 1970s. Nº de ref. del artículo: 9514107829FIN042621
