In Azban and the Crayfish, the racoon is the trickster, but the little crayfish is also dishonest. The story tells us that the lesson is about the little crayfishs dishonesty, not the racoons dishonesty. It also tells us that we should never celebrate the misfortunes of others. Whats the difference here in the racoon and the crayfish? Why is it that our response to a trickster is the lesson? How does this compare to fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood where the girls gullibility is the lesson, not the wolfs deceptiveness?

In Raven the Trickster, Raven is selfish and disobedient. When we first meet him he is behaving cruelly for no reason other than his own amusement. He is also dishonest. He does all of the things fairy tale villains usually do, but in this case he gets away with it, and because the tale itself does not include any moralizing about Ravens behavior, we are free to see him as merely clever rather than evil if we choose. Based on this story, what would you say is the main difference in a villain and a trickster?
