Definition “poor folkist”. . .
Woody Guthrie’s “poor folkist” term, coined in his letter to Stetson Kennedy was using the common vernacular and everyday wisdom to move folks emotionally and politically. You may assume the stress is on the first word (“poor folkist”), implying that the concern is for “poor folk,” and aligning the folklorist whose subject was “poor folk” with socialist and communists and other left “ists.” Or, that “folkist” may on occasion have been a pun for “focused”– potentially an ironic comment on the more formally-driven folklorists and political theorists in his midst.
