West African Folk-Tales by William H. Barker and Cecilia Sinclair How We Got the Name "Spider Tales" IN the olden days all the stories which men told were stories of Nyankupon, the chief of the gods. Spider, who was very conceited, wanted the stories to be told about him. Accordingly, one day he went to Nyankupon and asked that, in future, all tales told by men might be Anansi stories, instead of Nyankupon stories. Nyankupon agreed, on one condition. He took an earthen vessel and set out for a place where he knew were numbers of bees. Next day he took a long stick and set out in search of a boa-constrictor. The third day he took a needle and thread and sewed up his eye. The text came from: Barker, William H. and Cecilia Sinclair.
