Oral Literature and Performance in Southern Africa
Edited by Duncan Brown

This book draws together contributions from literary studies, anthropology, ethnomusicology, and African language studies to analyze the complex functioning of oral texts and models in differing contexts. It examines the continuing role of orality in modern society, the adaptation of oral models to printed forms, and the ability of oral forms to ‘talk back’ to the technology of print.Subjects
