Book Description

January 1984 0881330485 978-0881330489 Reprint
This highly insightful and stimulating collection of relevant studies on verbal performance (artistic action and event), seen from the point of view of sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, folklore studies and semiotics, represents a clear assembly of perspective and methodology. The initial essay is succinct and suggestive, and the scope of the theory is exemplified by four supplementary essays. The book provides readers of folklore, anthropology, linguistics, or any field interested in performance and its verbal dimensions with excellent background material for a contrastive approach to narrative, ritual, and ceremonial forms of verbal behavior in different sociocultural settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Folklore as performance June 11 2011
By Christopher R. Travers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This short paperback discusses various aspects of verbal art, particularly in the folklore and folktale context, as performance rather than simply as repository of lore. The first essay lays out a basic theory as well as some aspects of performance theory as applied to performances of folktales. The supplemental essays expand on these points and provide examples in action.

Although the book is short, it is also dense and rich, providing great opportunities to rethink how we address traditional storytelling. Great book, and if it is of interest, I'd also recommend: The Singer of Tales
