Abstract
The first three of the five stories here I would put among myths or legends. The Wind and the Werewolf is a wistful tribute to love. How the Fox Was Filled . . . A Christmas Fable presents an encounter between a fox and the boy carpenter, Jesus. Most helpful for me is The Leopard Who Changed His Spots. After laboring to change his spots -- and succeeding! -- he finds himself rejected and ridiculed in leopard society. In this heart-sick instant the great thought came to him: Itr seems, thought the leopard, that I am the moral of my own story, that it wasn't wrong for me to change. But it was wrong to expect to be admired for doing without that which others are proud of possessing (15). My sense of Prince Luap and The Sorceress is that they are fairy tales with the same kind of good deep human sense that we find in the first three stories.
