Folklore in maiden games
Category: Traditional Bulgarian culture
Фолклорът в моминските игри
Language: Bulgarian


     The book analyzes the "creation" of the maiden in the ritual system of the patriarchal Bulgarian society, her socialization and ability to create a home and family. In Bulgarian folklore, some games, round dances and toys carry a rich symbolism, which is not preserved today. What is the mythological significance of distaff and spindle in the Bulgarian traditions and why in folk songs, tales and legends they are often silver or gold? What do they protect from and what is their place in the maiden ritual games  these are some of the questions the author is trying to answer in the present study.
