Subject: RE: George Collins Is Innocent!
Hi Padrig,
Does this include ballads such as Sir Oluf and the Elf-King's Daughter, Sir Nann and the Fairy? My own opinion on the British versions is that they're burlesques of an earlier version. I have quite a few continental versions such as Prior, Borrow, Olrik, Grundtvig etc.
