I learned about Folklore characters as a child, from my mother and father, from uncles and grandparents, from friends, from calypsos and stories. Because in the Caribbean, folklore characters are general knowledge, as much a part of life as rainy season and dry season, I feel like I have known them all my life.
But to help me be as accurate as possible, find and trace the origins of these characters, I did a lot of reading.
Below are a list of some of the most helpful websites, essays and books, I found.
