Writing the oral tradition : oral poetics and literate culture in medieval England by Mark Amodio( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Amodio's book focuses on the influence of the oral tradition on written vernacular verse produced in England from the fifth to the fifteenth century. His primary aim is to explore how a living tradition articulated only through the public, performance voices of pre-literate singers came to find expression through the pens of private, literate authors. Amodio argues that the expressive economy of oral poetics survives in written texts because, throughout the Middle Ages, literacy and orality were interdependent, not competing, cultural forces. After delving into the background of the medieval oral-literate matrix, Writing the Oral Tradition develops a model of non-performative oral poetics that is a central, perhaps defining, component of Old English vernacular verse. Following the Norman Conquest, oral poetics lost its central position and became one of many ways to articulate poetry. Contrary to many scholars, Amodio argues that oral poetics did not disappear but survived well into the post-Conquest period. It influenced the composition of Middle English verse texts produced from the twelfth to the fourteenth century because it offered poets an affectively powerful and economical way to articulate traditional meanings. Indeed, fragments of oral poetics are discoverable in contemporary prose, poetics, and film as they continue to faithfully emit their traditional meanings

New directions in oral theory( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, a group of leading classicists and medievalists interrogates the complex ways in which oral and literate culture intersect with and shape one another's contours. Rejecting the view that orality and literacy are mutually exclusive and contradictory cultural forces, these essays focus on the mix of oral and literate poetics discoverable in a wide range of ancient and medieval texts. In the explorations of texts produced in cultures situated at various points along the oral-literate continuum, the authors reveal how deeply and inextricably intertwined orality and literacy are and they further demonstrate just how supple and powerful an interpretive tool contemporary oral theory is."--Jacket
