Coming to Light: Contemporary Translations of the Native Literatures of North America (Paperback) - Taschenbuch

1996, ISBN: 0679743588

ID: 3175435861

[EAN: 9780679743583], Neubuch, [PU: Random House USA Inc, United States], Brand New Book. The vitality of the spoken word is essential to Native American cultures. Because of their dependence on oral performance, the stories, songs, legends, and ceremonies of a Native people often died with the last speaker of the language. Of the two hundred or so native languages in North America today, perhaps forty-five are spoken by over a thousand people, in contrast to pre-Columbian times, when there were as many as five hundred distinct tongues spoken by millions. But now, with the revival and heightened awareness of this vital tradition, more of the surviving literatures are being studied and translated into English so that they can be enjoyed and appreciated anew. Brian Swann, professor of English at the Cooper Union in New York City, has collected many of the new translations in Coming to Light, and in his introduction provides an overview, detailing changing attitudes toward the cultures of Native Americans, and the state of those cultures today. Coming to Light is a showcase of stories, songs, oratory, and prayer of the indigenous peoples of the continent. Unlike in previous anthologies of Native American literature, each of the translations is placed, through the use of individual introductions by respected scholars, in its appropriate cultural and linguistic context.

Coming To Light: Contemporary Translations of the Native Literatures of North America - gebunden oder broschiert

1996, ISBN: 0679743588

ID: 14098850071

[EAN: 9780679743583], [PU: Vintage], History|Historical Geography, Social Science|Ethnic Studies|Native American Studies, Social Science|Folklore & Mythology, Jacket, This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: From Inuit and Aleut to Iroquois, Lakota, and Navajo, this magnificent anthology acquaints readers with the untrammeled breadth and power of the spoken literatures of North America's native peoples. It is the first collection to present its selections in their full cultural context, for each of its stories, songs, prayers, and orations is accompanied by extensive translators' notes that tell us how it was told or sung and what it meant to its narrator. Here are stories of shamans and tricksters, shape-shifting animals and intrepid heroines; songs that summon game and avert sickness; prayers of thanksgiving and histories of the devastating encounter of Indian and European. As edited by the distinguished scholar Brian Swann, Coming to Light is a revelation, a book that re-creates the world of America's original inhabitants in all its strangeness, splendor, earthy humor, and richness of spirit. Book jacket.
