dc.descriptionThe subject of this study is a performance of "Wicked John and the Devil," one of the teller's best-known and most emblematic tales. It was recorded at his home on Beech Mountain, North Carolina, on June 6, 1985. This was the same occasion and audience for which he told "Hardy-Hardass," his version of AT513, which was transcribed and discussed in Jack in Two Worlds (Sobol 1994). "Wicked John" is a version of AT330, "The Smith Outwits the Devil." This is a tale common all over Europe2 and has been found in the New World in white, Hispanic, and African-American traditions.
