Vladimir Yakovlevich Propp (29 April 1895 & mdash; 22 August 1970) was a Russian structuralist scholar who analysed the basic plot components of Russian folk tales to identify their simplest irreducible narrative elements. His best known work is the 1928 Morphology of the Folktale.

Vladimir Propp's work criticized Antti Aarne's work for ignoring what motifs did in a tale, and analysed the basic plot, or action, components of Russian folk tales to identify their simplest irreducible narrative elements.
