"Oral poetry is rapidly becoming a new field of interest for many scholars. Of particular interest are the problems of the whole tradition of oral transmission and the influence of oral tradition on written tradition. Though oral poetry was an acceptable form of literature in the past, it has been only recently recognized by scholars as a source for study of tradition in literature. Recognition came when the assumption that oral literature was produced largely by non-literate people was proven incorrect when applied to certain regions."--Introduction.
