9780299182144: The Poem in the Story: Music, Poetry, and Narrative

Harold Scheub has conducted many investigations into nonverbal aspects of storytelling. In this work, he searches out what makes a story artistically engaging and emotionally evocative, the metaphorical centre that Scheub calls the poem in the story.

From the Back Cover:

"Scheub has gone to much greater length than any scholar I know to deduce, by extrapolating from as wide a reach of evidence as possible, the driving aesthetic impulse in a storytelling tradition. His concentrated gaze on the organizing 'lyrical center' enables Scheub to show why a good story is a good story, whether in an oral or a literate tradition."-Isidore Okpewho, SUNY-Binghamto

About the Author:
