GUEST If you don't like ballads...... (252* d) RE: If you don't like ballads...... 16 May 19


I think someone suggested that Child might have changed his views on the question of whether ballads were originally composed by 'ordinary people' as opposed to an elite on the basis of something in the later volume of Child Ballads. I thought that the dates might be helpful in considering this question. The encyclopaedia entry which I have followed more knowledgeable people in taking as setting out Child's explicitly expressed views seems to have been published in 1900.
