Summary
Professor Drout traces literature back to its ultimate sources in oral tradition, showing us how works as varied as the Odyssey, Beowulf, the Finnish Kalevala, and epic songs from the former Yugoslavia were shaped by their origins as songs sung--and composed--before a live audience. Understanding the oral roots of these great works lets us see them in a hwole new light. From classical texts to contemporary media, Drout demonstrates how the dynamics or oral tradition shape the verbal art that makes us who we are
