A Catalogue of Story Types


Story types and themes are not logically distinct categories, but in most cases it is possible to separate them. Nevertheless, the reader is encouraged to examine "A Catalogue of Themes," in addition to the present page.

The story types of this collection do not well resemble those of Aarne-Thompson, and no attempt has been made to fit them into that mold. The reason for their divergence lies in the fact that most of the stories in this collection are myths, not folktales, which makes a very big difference to their story and thematic content.


Note: This catalogue is not yet exhaustive. The process of adding themes to the list is ongoing, and new themes will occasionally be introduced when they are adduced from the material.
