Summary
"Drawing together contributions from literary studies, anthropology, ethno-musicology and African language studies the book analyses 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."--Jacket
