Introduction; or, Why the Comparativist Should Take Account of the South Pacific
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This issue of Oral Tradition is devoted to oral traditions in the South Pacific and reports the results of a series of twentieth-century and mainly field-based studies. Since this region may be unfamiliar to some readers, these opening comments give a very brief introduction to this vast area, followed by some discussion of the significance of its oral traditions and their study for the wider comparative study of oral tradition.
