Example text

In all the myths and fairytales I have studied, I have never seen a case where a hero with helpful animals does not win out. If he picks up a helpful or a grateful animal who has promised to help, with absolute certainty it can be predicted that there will not be a tragedy but a happy end. In that way one can predict the time sequence in the fairytale, and predict what will happen with a certain accuracy. This means that there are not only typical motifs but also typical sequences of archetypal events.

And what does the Oriental fairytale teller do? He always takes this note of suspense and just starts another story from there. He makes another chain of events and we can see that because we have these fairytales.
