The idea of folk-literature dates back toan extremely ancient and contested timeframe. Different aspects of folklore including ballad, folktales, fairy tales, ideas of myths, legends and their social implications have always had a deep imprint in genres of literature and interdisciplinary studies. Myths, legends, seasonal events, children’s folklores, studies in fairy tales, vernacular folk literature, indigenous studies all are extremely relevant in underlining the capacity and goals and a methodology that glued communities and nations together. The composition and the retelling of history and myths always have a dominant role to play in the discursive formation of us/they. Although folklore and oral traditions are not coterminous, as one the one hand, several oral traditions function socially as part of popular history and literature, depending on their specific cultural and also socio-historical location. Folklore was a term that was introduced in English language as early as 1848, included non-verbal traditions, festivals, foods, customs, verbal expression through theatre and performance and even through popular historical narratives.
