Literary Analysis

TRICKSTER TALES
Trickster tales are a type of folk tale that feature an animal or person who typically
engages in deceit, violence, and magic. Tricksters are archetypal characters—character
types that can be found in literary works from different cultures throughout the ages. A
trickster is full of contradictions and may appear to be heroic and greedy, devious and
kind, or foolish and clever.
