Swan Maidens
Sometime in February I plan to add a Swan Maidens section to SurLaLune. I keep receiving questions about it and thought I would build an area for it. I am concentrating on the Swan Maiden tales, AT-400*, but will include Swan Lake and Quest for Lost Bride tales.

For now, any recommendations for articles, modern interpretations, tales, etc. are quite welcome as I build, build, build.

I will also be including articles in this section since I have found several that are out of copyright, including:

The Swan-Maidens
by Sabine Baring-Gould

Werewolves and Swan-Maidens
by John Fiske

Swan Maidens
by Edwin Sidney Hartland

You can preview the very much under construction area at:

Markl Helperin, Chris Van Allsberg SWAN LAKE

I have at least two Swan Maiden stories published and one poem:

"Swan Lake" in BAREFOOT BOOK OF BALLET STORIES

A Swedish Swan Maid story in FAVORITE FOLKTALES

"Swan/Maiden" poem, first pubbed in oneof the Xanadus, then reprinted most recently in ONCE UPON A TIME (She Said) I believe, am not in my office.

Re: Swan Maidens
I'm not sure if you consider this valid or not...but there is a manga (Japanese graphic novel) by Watase Yuu called "Ayashi no Ceres" or "Ceres: Celestial Legend." This series is a modern interpretation of the many different versions of the "swan maiden" tales. It's actually really interesting, because the author talks about how she researched the different versions of the story...I believe she said that she found 60+ in Japan alone. That, of course, is in addition, to the many other variations from other parts of the world. ^_^
