Quotation Exercise

Sayers’s assertions abut the folk seem more questionable than her assertions about the films: “Folklore is a universal form, a great symbolic literature which represents the folk.” Okay, but the folk keep changing; and although folklore is universal, the folk are not a universal unit. Further, she says of folklore: “It is something that came from the masses, not something that is put over on the masses”—as opposed to Disneylore, obviously, but that leads us to a conundrum. Disney does come from the masses as well as being put over on the masses, which we’ll discuss further in a minute. (Hearne, “Disney Revisited” 389)
