Description

In Stars and Keys: Folktales and Creolization in the Southwest Indian Ocean, LeeHaring introduces readers to the rich folklore traditions of the islands of the southwest IndianOcean. The culture of Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles, Réunion, and the Comoros is a uniqueblend of traditions that have been brought from Africa, South Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Thefolktales from these islands reflect the diversity of this culture and provide a rare opportunity toobserve the fluidity of traditions and the process of creolization. Haring presents the tales in auniquely innovative style: he interrupts the text as if he were reading aloud and directly addressesthe reader. His words and those of the storytellers are clearly distinguished, making this folktalecollection useful to a wide range of readers and scholars.
