An astonishingly rich oral epic that chronicles the early history of a Bedouin tribe, the Srat Ban Hill has been performed for almost a thousand years. In this ethnography of a contemporary community of professional poet-singers, Dwight F. Reynolds reveals how the epic tradition continues to provide a context for social interaction and commentary.

About the Author:

Dwight Fletcher Reynolds is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Review:

"The richness of Reynolds’s text and his scholarly accomplishment serve as poignant reminders of how little we know about Arab folk performances and how difficult it is to teach these great traditions to our students."

(Virginia Danielson Middle East Studies Association Bulletin)

"Reynolds’s book both complements the works of his predecessors and surpasses them in the area on which he focuses. With it, we have a full and methodologically sophisticated treatment of the social poetics of Sirat Bani Hilal performance that is a model of how such research should be conducted."

(Peter Heath International Journal of Middle East Studies)
