Folklore and the Alternative Modernities

Nandini Sahu (Author)

In this book, an attempt has been made to deal with the study of folklore and the alternative modernities associated with it. The research papers closely examine how folk literature, classical literature and modern literature exchange hands to enrich each other. In the papers, there are well-knit examples from the oral as well as written literatures of different regions of India with a few comparative studies from the world literatures. The volume experiments with a flexible view of folk, not making folk a part of the marginal literature by pushing it to a period much before history. Thus, the modern texts in literature that have made explicit use of the folk to make it available to the readers today are also treated at par with the folk texts that have had only the oral tradition, called the ‘pure folk’.

This volume would be of immense value for the literature teachers, researchers, folklorists, anthropologists, experts of social psychology, marginal studies and developmental studies, culture critics, linguists and policy planners.
