Thread Name: definition of a ballad
Subject: RE: definition of a ballad
I am by no means clear what "of the folk" means. It may mean that a ballad is not a ballad unless it is a folk song, or it may mean that a ballad is not a ballad unless it sounds like a folk song, but I would not see that either test was necessary.
