Meta-oral literature menas 'oral literature of oral literature'. Meta-oral literature explains the folk's cognition on folktale and rule of human life. For example, 'folktale of folktale' is representative meta-oral literature. This folktale says for us of itself what folktale is and what folktale to be.
In folktale of folktale as meta-folktale, folktale is charactered as a human being. The imaginative power could characterized everything of the world. In these imagination, folk say 'what world is' and 'what we are' in our classes, etc.
The Research into meta-oral literature need 'emic' and 'etic' methods all. especially I remarked point of view 'emic', and take native information. Through these two point of views, I observed folk's cognition on folktale and folk's view of world in meta-oral literature.
The result of analysis of meta-folktale is summarized as the following. Life of folktale is to perform folktale, and society don't perform folktale kill that society as well as folktale. Folk who have memorized folktale let it live and fresh through performing folktale.
Although we started practical concerns, through a set of works about meta-oral literature, we became to reach liberal concerns.
