From the Publisher"This workadds a decisive and stunning new dimension to John Miles Foley's already distinguished contributions to the study of oral traditions—ancient, medieval, and modern. His demonstration that they share significant features with the composition and communication of cultural production deploying digital technology and the internet will provoke a major upheaval in the study of long-term media history."
—Thomas Pettitt, coeditor of The Ballad As Narrative: Studies in the Ballad Tradition of England, Scotland, Germany, and Denmark
"Oral Tradition and the Internet is a stunningly ambitious and highly provocative multi-platform project in which John Miles Foley invites the reader to join him on a fascinating and compelling exploration of the interconnected architectonics of the human mind and the Internet. Wide-ranging, challenging, and intellectually rich, it will have an enormous and revolutionary impact on the field of oral studies and on many interconnected fields of humanistic study. Because it is as accessible as it is erudite, it will appeal alike to the specialist and non-specialist reader."
—Mark C. Amodio, author of Writing the Oral Tradition: Oral Poetics and Literate Culture in Medieval England
"With its intellectual arc from antiquity to the future just beyond our horizon, the book is a fitting monument to an imaginative, generous, and immensely productive scholar."—MLR
