50 Akan Folktales from Ghana: English and Akan Versions

 
9783843318723: 50 Akan Folktales from Ghana: English and Akan Versions

Akan folktales have been collected and enjoyed for over a century now but never with the freshness and uniqueness of this latest work. This collection includes audience comments, dialogues and musical interludes, so it comes in words which capture much of the performance dynamics of the various tales told by males and females, young and old, under the African moonlit nights, and in the afternoons in schools. Aside the narrator-narratee interactions interlaced with songs, the 50 tales are presented in the local Akan language in which they were told and their literal translations in English preserving much local linguistic flavour. There are also explanatory notes. An invaluable addition to the existing body of Ghanaian oral texts, this book will be enjoyed by all and also found useful as a textbook for students and academics of Literature and related subjects, especially in the universities. Readers are encouraged to also read Deep and Surface Structures of Akan Folktales: Themes, Characters, Structures and Literary Devices, by the same author, for a literary analysis of the tales.
