Does Folklore Matter?
This introductory chapter sets out the book’s purpose, which is to examine the transformation in how folklore was understood, analyzed, and interpreted in postwar Germany as expressed in the works of Lutz Röhrich (1922–2006). It is based on an analytical reading of Röhrich’s first and seminal work, Märchen und Wirklichkeit (1956), and his writings on folksongs collected in the volume Gesammelte Schriften zur Volkslied- und Volksballaenforschung (2002). The chapter also considers how far Röhrich’s perspective remains relevant to the present times.
