What are Legends and Folktale?
As in many legends, it is hard to know what is real and what is not valid. There is no writing left from that time that tells what happened. The monk who said the story was nearly 150 years later in the 13th century. These means there are no records or proof that what happened at that time. We know about them from older people telling them to younger people. Some legends may have started as 'true' stories, but as people said and retold them, they may have changed some parts, so they are less 'true'. They may have changed them to make it more interesting.
All stories have been passed down, retold, translated and, more recently, written down, because everyone loves a good story. As in many legends, the story may have changed over time to take on some special mythical features. Legends are essential to those of us who wish to study a particular time in history or a specific culture because they often tell us a great deal about the beliefs and lifestyle of the people’s. A legend is usually based on a real event in the past.
