CapriUni BS: CapriUni's blog: disability in folktales (228* d) RE: BS: CapriUni's blog: disability in folktales 11 Oct 11


Well, songs are fair game -- my post on the "false-parted woman" was about the motif of prosthetics in comic ballads, dating back to the 1600s.

And I plan on doing a post on "The Jolly Beggar" sometime in the nearish future, to contrast the attitudes toward men and women with disabilities.... And then, there's also Teddy in "Mrs. McGrath."

But yeah, it sounds like "How I spent my time in Hospital" is a bit too recent for my scope. Maybe you could start a new discussion thread about the song, here on Mudcat?
