Literatura Ludowa Fri, 17 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0200 “Three ladies leading the celebration”: Creations of Femininity in Stanisław Vincenz’ "Barwinkowy wianek" <p>This article is an attempt at analyze and interpret the creation of female characters of<br />Stanisław Vincenz’ novel Barwinkowy wianek. It can be concluded that Vincenz used the<br />traditional repertoire of creating female characters, drawing on romanticism and modernism.<br />This repertoire contains mythical, archetypal and biblical images, as well as patriarchal<br />social patterns and phantasms, all of which were identified in the text. The social roles of<br />grandmothers, mothers, wives, maids, nannies, servants were set in the realities specific<br />to each described culture. The descriptions of the female body tend to be “disembodied”<br />in the novel.</p> <p>The images of women in Barwinkowy wianek oscillate between spirituality (“an angel”,<br />“a queen”, “a princess”, “woman-soul”, God Mother, a mother feeder), infantilisation<br />(“a woman-child”) and descriptions of social oppression (corset fashion, conventions, violence). However, in most cases the women are shown in festive, ideal situations. The article looks at the meanings of the characters through the symbolism of numbers and symbolism of archetypal femininity (great Mother Goddess Sophia, light and dark faces of Shekhina).</p> <p> </p> Ewa Serafin Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Folklore and Popular Culture. Literatura Ludowa Fri, 17 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0200 The Souls in Penance: On the Folk Origin of the Spirit from "I Like It" and Its Relationship with the Spirit from Pcim <p>It has not yet been established whether the folk song Adam Mickiewicz refers to in the<br />footnote to the ballad „I Like It” actually existed. On the other hand, the list of related folk tales is quite long. The similarity between individual oral pieces and the ballad has already been demonstrated by pointing out common themes, especially the penance for insensitivity and rejection of love. However, none of the folk tale turns out to be similar enough to “I Like It” to dispel doubts of those researchers who think that Mickiewicz took the idea from literary tradition and faked the footnote. Other similarity criteria should be applied to enable establishing references to the very popular and extensive folk tale group – souls in penance. All tales from this group share the same morphological pattern in which the type of sin is subject to the greatest variability. The group should be joined by a folk tale recorded in Pcim in 2019. In this version, penance is about sneezing until someone replies with a God bless you. “I Like It” and the tale from Pcim share a morphological background – the same<br />sequence of threads arranged in the same order and the use of retrospection. However, the direction of this relation is not clear. Mickiewicz’s idea for “I Like It” could have been taken from folklore, or the ballad found its way to the countryside and inspired folk culture.</p> Paulina Karpeta, Olga Radziszewska Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Folklore and Popular Culture.

The elements of urban on the National List of Historical and Cultural Heritage of the Republic of Belarus are presented. Both positive and negative development trends are revealed. The positive ones are connected with the involving of intangible heritage in local cultural development plans, its safeguarding by the National List, increasing of urban population interest in heritage and using of participatory practices for safeguarding. Among the negative aspects of intangible heritage in the cities are economic pressure, cultural globalization,<br>demographic changes, decontextualization and commercialization.</p> Tatsiana Marmysh Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Folklore and Popular Culture.

Interferences were singled out on the basis<br>of structure, theme and motives, characters, language game, homeland, oral literary forms,<br>etc. It is realized that oral literature is quite represented, and that interferences mostly<br>took place on the basis of homeland and patriotism, motives and oral literary forms. The<br>research proved that the elements of oral literature are firmly and deeply inserted in the<br>reading works of Croatian authors and that in no case should they be considered peripheral<br>elements as was the case for a long time on the Croatian literary scene when oral literature<br>was systematically neglected.</p> Jasminka Brala-Mudrovčić, Marija Gračanin Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Folklore and Popular Culture.
