Description :

Language: English Brand New Book. The Jie people of northern Uganda and the Turkana of northern Kenya have a genesis myth about Nayeche, a Jie woman who followed the footprints of a gray bull across the waterless plateau and who founded a cradle land in the plains of Turkana. In Remembering Nayeche and the Gray Bull Engiro, Mustafa Kemal Mirzeler shows how the poetic journey of Nayeche and the gray bull Engiro and their metaphorical return during the Jie harvest rituals gives rise to stories, imagery, and the articulation of ethnic and individual identities. Since the 1990s, Mirzeler has travelled to East Africa to apprentice with storytellers. Remembering Nayeche and the Gray Bull Engiro is both an account of his experience listening to these storytellers and of how oral tradition continues to evolve in the modern world. Mirzeler s work contributes significantly to the anthropology of storytelling, the study of myth and memory, and the use of oral tradition in historical studies. N° de réf. du libraire

Critique: 'In this excellent extended case study, readers learn how storytellers recount the past to address today's most pressing concerns... This text could be superb for an undergrad humanities class... Highly recommended.' -- A.F. Roberts Choice Magazine vol 52:04:2014
