GUEST,Richie Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 5 (107* d) RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 5 14 May 13


Hi,

I hate titles that are not the same as the text and are somehow applied from another source. Maybe it was once Robin, He's Gone to the Wood but it still seems to be mis-titled.

Steve, didn't know about the Slattern Wife. I thought it was based on
A Merry Jeste of a Shrewde and Curst Wyfe c. 1580. I've put that broadside here:
http://bluegrassmessengers.com.temp.realssl.com/a-merry-jeste-of-a-shrewde-and-curst-wyfe--pre1575.aspx

What is the connection to "The Taming of the Shrew"? Isn't it A Merry Jeste of a Shrewde and Curst Wyfe?

Richie
