How many trickster characters do you know?
Trickster characters appear in my folkloric traditions. Coyote is a good one for native Americans. Anansi, the spider god, is the trickster for many African traditions. We even find Brer Rabbit as the trickster in US history. The trickster always finds a way to mess things up. He’s the one causing the problems in that saying: “the best laid plans of mice and men….”
I’m looking for others I don’t know or haven’t thought of. If you know of one, could you tell me, please? And maybe give a one sentence description? Thanks.
