The Britannica Common Core Library Series


Oral or written, words paint pictures that no other medium can fully capture. Myths, legends, fables, folktales, poems, and fairy tales are among the oldest forms that storytelling has taken and can be found in cultures across the globe. The origins, themes, and elements common to each as well as the features that distinguish one form from another—from the types of characters to structure—are considered in depth in these exciting volumes. Readers will also be introduced to notable authors of each form and are given the tools to try writing their very own stories.
