BABA YAGA, THE CONFOUNDING CRONE OF SLAVIC FOLKLORE
Slavic myth tells of Baba Yaga - a foul woman who lives in a magical hut in the woods. She is said to cook and eat unwary travelers. Stories about her involve children in distress and supernatural beings. But it is the very ambiguous nature of Baba Yaga herself that continues to fascinate researchers and folklorists to this day.
