Introduction by Stanley Diamond, Commentaries by Karl Kernyi and C.G. Jung. The Myth of the Trickster is one of the earliest and most universal expressions of mankind; nowhere does it survive in more starkly archaic form that in the uninhibited episodes of the Winnebago Trickster Cycle, recorded here in full. Radin, Kernyi, and Jung reveal the Trickster as filling a twofold role: on the one hand he is an "archetypal psychic structure," and on the other his myth is a present-day outlet for the most unashamed and liberating satire of the onerous obligations of social order, religion, and ritual.
