Uncle Remus

In their original vernacular, the tales of Brier Rabbit can be a challenge to read at any age; however, as these stories were meant to be shared orally, a good storyteller would be able to get the diction, accents, and mannerisms down just right to give these characters life. The tales themselves are a play on the good versus evil theme found in almost all traditional literature. Brier Rabbit is constantly being harassed byBrier Bear and Brier Fox as they want o enjoy him for dinner. Brier Rabbit’s main goal in the tales is to show children that, by using their brains and their imagination, evil can always be defeated as those who are evil are portrayed as dim-witted and easily-fooled. The addition of Uncle Remus as the story teller continues to show the long-standing importance of the storytellers in society. Because of the challenging test, the illustrations are most important in telling the story as well and provide intricate yet simple interpretations of the tales.
