In this article, the life of Croatian oral literature is observed on the basis of contemporary notations. The main objective is to show that oral literature is not merely a remnant of the past but that it is integrated naturally into the totality of a particular community’s life. Several frequent motifs in Croatian oral literature have lived on until today. Our examples demonstrate that certain stereotyped topics have survived well, even if in a somewhat altered form. They are used to establish links with earlier archetypical forms.
