    1 thought on “Werewolves, Bird-Women, Tiger-Men and Other Human Animals”

    1. Ok, I cannot fully recommend this book, but I can recommend it in general.The author really has a lot of information about the human-animal relation in mythology and folklore in his book ranging from big bears to little mice. Not everything was unknown to me but the majority was. That the book has so much information is at the same time a merit and a flaw because it can become tiresome to read after a while and many are only mentioned and not addressed in detail albeit the author managed to avoi [...]

    2. When a hard-working person of somewhat scholastic bent decides to compile folklore and myths, you can expect either of two things to come out of the book or process:1. a search is on to find the true source of such stories, so that, by following the smoke the fire can be traced;2. an attempt would be made to understand the truth behind the stories, and the end-results that said stories sought for, while being recounted orally or in writing.Regrettably, the book turned out to have neither. The au [...]

    3. A really lovely little collection of stories about shapeshifting and the general cross-section between animals and humans in folklore, mythology and history.I really enjoyed reading this, although anyone who wants to give it a go should take note of the fact that it was written in the early twentieth century and so words like 'primitive' and 'savage' abound.

    4. Written in 1915. Frank Hamel (who actually was a woman) collected and organized tales about the transformation of animals into humans and vice versa. She has gathered her material from all over the world and organized by animal categories rather than cultures. An interesting and useful book.
