Baba Yaga

  "Baba Yaga" by Rima Staines So the time has come for me to step into Baba Yaga's forest again. I have been here many times before. Of all the stories in my collection, the Slavic folktale of Vasalisa and Baba Yaga is one of my favourites. You can’t step into the same river twice – and the same goes for stories. And every time I tell this story I find myself stepping foot into a new forest and coming face to face with a new aspect of Baba Yaga. There are some truly gruesome tales about Baba Yaga. She can be both dangerous and helpful. One might wonder if she is good or evil. I would say both, or neither. She is so much older than the kinds of stories that have tried to catergorize the world in terms of "good versus evil." Baba Yaga belongs to the group of mythological Crones/Wise Women//Bone Women that appear in various forms throughout the stories and myths of the world. The Ancient Grandmothers who form the land and sing the bones to life. Baba Yaga stand
