World Flutelore

Dale A. Olsen

University of Illinois Press

This chapter deals with one of the most common issues in world flutelore—love. Many of the flute tales found in the world have to do with sexuality and magical love powers used by men to attract and woo a woman. The chapter includes several stories and discusses the following topics: flute sound as magic for wooing the opposite sex; the irresistible magical charm of the flute from the point of view of charmed women; flute sound as individual recognition of and by the opposite sex; flutes for remembering the opposite sex; flutes that attract wild female nymphs; and the sexual power of flutes.

Keywords:   flutelore, love, flutes, magic, sexual power, wooing, courtship, opposite sex
