9783825885038: Bukusu Stories: Sixty Chingano from Western Kenya. Bukusu Texts and English Translations (Beitrage zur Afrikanistik)

Story telling was still a vital art in western Kenya in the second half of the twentieth century, as several collections published in East Africa testify. However, most of these books contain only English language versions and have adopted literary conventions which are not characteristic of oral performances. In this volume sixty stories are presented in one of the local languages which follow closely the oral format, based on actual recordings, together with faithful translations in English. The stories were collected around 1970 and show a wide variety of themes and modes of delivery.
