Tales and Legends from the Kewa (Southern Highlands, Papua New Guinea)

Sofort lieferbar. Erschienen Oktober 2015

Reimer Verlag

This is an original and unique collection of tales and legends from the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea (PNG). Recorded by a thirteen-year old boy from a small and remote rural village, the stories present a kind of ‘indigenous auto ethnography’. Yet, on some pages people pursue their daily activities, grow food and raise pigs, while on others the protagonists encounter bush spirits, tap into sources of unlimited wealth or are transformed into animals. In other words, the fabulous follows on from the mundane, and what seems prosaic in one story gives way to the extraordinary in the next. The book could be recommended for undergraduate and graduate courses on general anthropology, literature, linguistics, folklore research, myth and religion, poetry and Pacific studies.
