Abstract:

Drawing on his work in Iceland, Ireland, Scotland, North America,
Ghana, and Fiji, linguistic anthropologist and folklorist Richard
Bauman presents a series of ethnographic case studies that offer a
sparkling look at intertextuality as communicative practice.

- A fascinating perspective on intertextuality: the idea that written
and spoken texts speak to one another, e.g. through genre or
allusions.

- Presents a series of ethnographic case studies to illustrate the
topic.

- Draws on a broad range of oral performances and literary records
from across the world.

- The author’s introduction sets a framework for the analysis of
genre, perform and intertextuality.

- Shows how performers blend genres, e.g., telling stories about
riddles or legends about magical verses, or constructing sales
pitches.
