You might find these two books useful:
John Stephens and Robyn McCallum, Retelling Stories, Framing Culture (Garland, 1998).
Stephon Benson, Cycles of Influence: Fiction, Folktale, Theory (Wayne State University Press, 2003). Here's the link to Wayne State U Press.
See also what Jack Zipes has to say about "duplication" and "revision" in the introduction to Fairy Tale as Myth/Myth as Fairy Tale (University Press of Kentucky, 1994).
