The Living Ballad in Brazil: Two Performances
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Many approaches have been devised to study the elusive art form known as the oral traditional ballad, to try to reach an understanding of the interplay between memory and creativity in its transmission from one generation to another over several centuries. In this paper I will add yet another approach: a close analysis of two oral performances I recorded in rural Brazil in 1978.
Oral Tradition, 2/2-3 (1987): 573-615.
