George Webbe Dasent (1817-1896) was a folklorist and translator of legends and fairy-tales into English. Dasent was acquainted with Jacob Grimm who advised him to study mythology. Eventually George Dasent became a professor of English literature. 'The Blue Belt' is a fairy-tale that was collected and translated by Gerorge Webbe Dasent. This fairy-tale, as many others, features the element of artifacts. Artifacts are special items that give their owners some special abilities or help them to perform magical tricks. This time the story tells us about the Blue Belt — a magical belt that makes its owner amazingly strong.
