VARIANTS AND PARALLELS IN THE FOLKORE OF OTHER NATIONS

N u MER 0 U S variants of and parallels to the above folk-tales and legends collected from Hebrew and Yiddish sources are found in the folklore of other nations. Space

will not permit me to give all those that I have been able to find in Basque, Breton, Irish, Norwegian, Italian, Sicilian, and Russian folktales and legends, not to speak of Indian and Persian collections. I have indicated the respective literatures in the footnotes, and the variants and parallels of a few of the folktales related above will suffice.
