Roy Judge has followed up his Jack-in-the-Green with an invaluable guide to the literature on May Day, from its disputed origins to its current practice. He considers the customs associated with May Day, their religious and political aspects, local celebrations, the roles taken by children, sweeps and milk-maids, and links to other folkloric topics such as the Green Man and Victorian ruralism. This revised edition contains well over 100 entries, and is the first in a series of FLS Books bibliographies.
