This chapter discusses the inherent messiness found in folklores. As folklores are passed down to future generations, one aspect of their narrative is changed; as seen from the case of “Cinderella,” which started as a folktale but which changed into a Walt Disney animated film for children. With folklore’s transition to different kinds of media, folklore escapes its usual folk context, as it is used as a fundamental mode of human communication.
