 [42. Fire and Anansi.]


42. Fire and Anansi.

A less witty version of this popular Jamaica story occurs in Jekyll, 129-131.

In Dayrell, 64-65, Sun and Water are great friends. Sun visits Water, but Water never visits Sun. At length, Sun invites Water and builds a great compound to receive him and his friends. All come, take possession, and crowd Sun and his wife, Moon, out into the sky.

Next: Note 43. Quit-quit and Anansi.
