I have no idea what biases or misrepresentations the collectors and/or translator may have introduced into these tales. As tales I liked them well enough. I especially loved "How a gypsy went in search of woe" which rollicks through several story types, most notably the woman who marries a man who's a wonderful lover by night but a complete mystery by day; is given a key that she's forbidden to use; and then holds tight to her love a la Janet to her Tam Lin.
