This chapter examines the role of folklore in the life and work of writer Shirley Jackson and her husband, literary critic and folklorist Stanley Edgar Hyman. It focuses particularly on their differing relationships with folklore and folklore studies and argues that reading Jackson and Hyman both and together gives us new understandings of her fictions and new insights into his particular brand of myth-ritual criticism.

Keywords:   Shirley Jackson, Stanley Edgar Hyman, Myth, Folklore studies
