These essays, most of them in the tradition of anthropological study of folklore, expand the current boundaries of the discipline and provide additional case studies to a growing literature in discourse analysis of oral performance."--Dan Ben-Amos
Authors examine weeping, double-talk, community-building, music, myth, humor and play, and concepts of time and history in various native Latin American communities.
