Narratives in Society: A Performer-Centered Study of Narration

Dégh, Linda (Fellow, 1990-91), ed.

Helsinki, Finland: Academia Scientiarum Fennica, 1995

From the publisher's description:

Narratives in Society represents three decades of scholarship by distinguished folklorist Linda Dégh. The twenty essays—some new, the rest newly revised—present Dégh’s ideas, theories, and approaches to folktales: the people who tell them, listen to them, pass them on, and the communities that support them.
