dc.description.abstract Every culture tells stories about tricksters. Tales of their mischief are told all over the world. These stories do not merely entertain; they also explain the rules of society by showing how the creatures who disregard them are often punished. The trickster is an outcast, a cultural hero, a creator, a destroyer, and a wonderfully amusing character who captures the attention of millions. The stories that follow focus on four tricksters, each with roots in multiple cultures around the world, each with different personalities depending on the culture they appear in. These stories blend the different characteristics of each trickster to highlight the differences and similarities between the cultures in which they appear, emphasizing the connections between these cultures.
