Abstract

This tale was collected from Jhanara Amin, who learned the art of storytelling in her childhood from the professional storyteller Mohammad Anwar. "The Golden Necklace"--an Afghan variant of AT 403, The Black and the While Bride--illustrates the role played by women in maintaining the oral tradition of Afghanistan, which continues today despite the wars.
