Oral poetry : an introduction by Paul Zumthor( Book )

54 editions published between 1983 and 2001 in 7 languages and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A penetrating analytical study of the sources of orality and contemporary modes of poetic practice by a prominent literary theorist. Zumthor discusses the development of oral poetry from antiquity to the present. Coinciding with the renewal of interest in the richly diverse yet remarkably homogeneous tradition of medieval literature, publication of Oral Poetry: An Introduction provides a penetrating analytic study of the sources of orality and contemporary modes of poetic practice. Paul Zumthor, the foremost literary theorist of Western orality, discusses the development of oral poetry from antiquity to the present—ranging from the way in which it was produced in the Middle Ages to griots in present day Africa. In his comprehensive treatment, Zumthor discusses general issues concerning oral poetry, from primary to mechanized orality (including the setting of text to music); the forms of oral poetry; the epic in the West, Africa, and other parts of the globe; the oral poet’s texte; performance in its manifold styles across the world; roles played in oral poetry (the poet as interpreter, the hearers, the variable duration of oral poetry in time and space, etc.); and oral ritual actions from archaic times to the present -- Homer to Bob Dylan."--pub. desc
