Myth-Folklore Unit: More Brer Rabbit

Overview. Like the other Brer Rabbit unit, this unit is based on the African-American folktales collected by Joel Chandler Harris in late 19th-century Georgia (see that overview for more information). The stories in the first unit all came from Joel Chandler Harris's first book of Brer Rabbit stories, published in 1880, while the stories in this unit come from Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit, published in 1907, along with other books of Brer Rabbit stories published by Harris. As before, I have removed the Uncle-Remus frametale for the stories, and I have also removed the eye-dialect, standardizing the spelling but without altering the dialect.

Language. You will probably find the stories much easier to read if you read them to yourself out loud. There are also recordings available from LibriVox for each story!

Story Length. These are all single-page stories.

Navigation. You will find the table of contents below, and you can also use this link to see the story posts displayed on two pages total: More Brer Rabbit. Click "Older Posts" at the bottom of that page to see the second page.
