A World of Others' Words

Drawing on his work in Iceland, Ireland, Scotland, North America, Ghana, and Fiji, linguistic anthropologist and folklorist Richard Bauman presents a series of ethnographic case studies that offer a sparkling look at intertextuality as communicative practice. A fascinating perspective on intertextuality: the idea that written and spoken texts speak to one another, e.g. through genre or allusions. Presents a series of ethnographic case studies to illustrate the topic. Draws on a broad range of oral performances and literary records from across the world. The author's introduction sets a framework for the analysis of genre, perform and intertextuality. Shows how performers blend genres, e.g., telling stories about riddles or legends about magical verses, or constructing sales pitches.
Richard Bauman is Distinguished Professor of Folklore and Ethnomusicology, Communication and Culture, and Anthropology, and Director of the Folklore Institute at Indiana University, Bloomington. His books include Verbal Art as Performance (1977), Let Your Words Be Few (1983), Story, Performance, and Event (1986), and Voices of Modernity (with Charles L. Briggs, 2003).
