Clowns & Tricksters
An Encyclopedia of Tradition and CultureBook - 1998
From Adugo to Zomo, from the funny to the frightening, the clowns and tricksters found in religious myths, common folktales, and ritual celebrations are among the world's best-known cultural figures. They're often "nonhumans" or humans who don't act according to social norms. They typically do things backward and use deception or ambiguity to trick others.
