Roud ballads
Steve Roud (da 
Wikipedia)

Quello di Francis Child non è l’unico catalogo di folk ballads in lingua inglese. Nel 1957 lo statunitense Malcom Laws ne pubblicò un altro con la American Folklore Society. Esistono inoltre molti cataloghi locali più o meno estesi. La collezione più monumentale è però quella realizzata negli anni ’70 da Steve Roud, bibliotecario di studi locali per il London Borough of Croydon. Il suo catalogo, che ingloba tutte le Child Ballads ma ne aggiunge moltissime altre, è consultabile online sul sito della Vaughan Memorial Library.

Di seguito una selezione ordinata delle Roud ballads, sono ovviamente escluse qui le Child Ballads, consultabili nella apposita pagina [“Child Ballads” (elenco per volumi)]
