Description
Folklore and ritual storytelling performances in India follow many different genres, appropriate for their various performers and subjects, categorized primarily in terms of the community to which a tradition "belongs." What does it mean, asks anthropologist Joyce Flueckiger in this study—a Choice Outstanding Academic Book—for a particular performance tradition to be identified with unmarried girls, tribal castes, or the region itself? And how do they relate to each other?

"In this superbly crafted, absorbing book, Flueckiger explores the relationships among folklore genres in the Chhattisgarh region of north India, achieving a pioneering model of the study of a 'folklore system' in its entirety.... This is ethnographic scholarship at its best. The multigenre approach is a major contribution, and this rich book should be read by all students of folklore, literature, performance, and South Asia."—Choice
