Richard Mellish If you don't like ballads...... (252* d) RE: If you don't like ballads...... 14 May 19


If Child indeed believed that the 'popular ballads' that he was concerned with were produced by an elite, then the significance of calling them 'popular' would be that, after having been produced by an elite, they had then been taken up by the people. If that was his thinking then it's very close to that of modern scholars such as the two Steves.
