Abstract

In this article, the writer discusses wisdom as motif in four folktales from four different cultures which are as follows: the Good Peasant’s Son (A Russian folktale), the Crocodile and the Hunter (an African-Nupe folktale), Breaking the Chain (a Guatemalan folktale), and Wisdom for Sale (an Indian-Gujerati folktale). The writer then discusses the wisdom through the actions of the main characters in the three folktales whilst the words of the main character in one folktale. Further, the writer uses formulaic theory as the aforesaid folktales have been spread through the words of mouth from generations to generations. Yet, the writer has found out the oral stories in written books. Eventually, the writer draws conclusion that wisdom has existed in the four mentioned folktales.
