Description

An exact model of V. Propp's Morphology of the Folktale, formulated in and generated by the Meta-symbolic Simulation system. Program listing included, with comments that references to page numbers in Propp's book. Also contains myth texts derived from a model of the "Three Part Inventions" chapter of Levi-Strauss', THE RAW AND THE COOKED.

Comments from the author
The English version of the Propp model appeared first as the UWCS Technical Report in 1974. The 1974 Tech Report version is exactly the same as the one that appeared in the 1977 book. <P>For historical reasons, the 1974 tech report is significant-- in December 1974, I mailed a copy to Claude Lévi-Strauss, whom I had never met. This led to his obtaining a visiting post for me in Paris at L'Ecole des hautes études en Science Sociale in 1976-- to work on modelling the thought processes he used in producing Mythologiques.<P> A revised French version of the paper, with a revised Propp model and an revised model for generating the 'double twist' transformation in the "Three Part Inventions" chapter of Levi-Strauss' The Raw & the Cooked was published in 1976. Parts of this French version are in English: a. the full set of rules for the Propp model are listed, with explanatory comments in English. b. the texts of the generated Russian tales are in English.
