Week 4: Twenty-two Goblins reading notes, Part A

The stories in Twenty-Two Goblins (Arthur Ryder's translation of the Sanskrit Vetālapañcaviṃśati.I love all the short stories in this story and my favorite is the very first one(the three lovers). I also would like rewrite the story as if instead of a goblin it is a ghost of a beautiful woman. I like the picture below because of how ghostly the goblin looks.
The Three Lovers - I like this story because I would have thought of the riddle in that way. I see that a son would want to honor his mother a father would want to bring her back but a lover would never leave her. I definitely want to use this story in in my rewrite.
