Description: Telling Tales explores the interlocking relationships among written medieval texts, the oral tradition, and the influence of folklore, and examines folklore and culture within literary and historical contexts. The diverse essays in this collection highlight the mutual shadowing of literature and oral narrative and how they relate to other areas of cultural production and performance, including systems of learning, political ideologies, gender formation and conflicts, folk religion, ethnic tensions, and legal practices. Folklore from a variety of literary and folk traditions including Arabic, Celtic, French, Jewish, Christian, Spanish, and Scandinavian are analyzed using multiple theoretical approaches such as psychoanalysis, feminist theory, new historicism, and semiotics. The relationship, and often the interchangeability, of high culture (such as canonical writings) and popular/folk culture (such as amulets or storytelling) is also explored. A more contemporary essay on the impact of the printing press on folkloric traditions concludes this collection that crosses disciplines, genres, and nationalities, penned by prominent European and American folklore scholars. The result is a work that is at once diversified, contrasted, and provocative. Telling Tales is an exemplary addition to the world of medieval studies and literature.
