@Meredith,

The "corpus of traditional lore" is mentioned in the context of demonstrating that Tutuola is a teller of folktales rather than a novelist, and expectations typically applied to a novel should not apply to his work. While it is true that it is typical of the folktale genre to derive from the "corpus of traditional lore," the author never mentions that there is a direct counterpart to it in a novel as (D) suggests.
