The theme of divination is usually expressed in literature as fortune-telling (astrology, tarot, runes, etc.), oracular pronouncements, or prophecy, and is a frequent element of mythopoeic literature and its sources, which this special issue will explore. Papers on specific works and/or the works of specific authors, including comparative treatments, are particularly welcome, as are studies of divination in folklore, fairy tale, myth, and medieval literature.
