Overview

Narrative Strategies in African Folktales: Revisiting the Russian Formalism Theory by Justin S. Niati

Is there any clear and consistent relationship between the functions in the Russian folktales and in the African/Yombe tales and why? This book addresses this legitimate concern as it applies the Russian formalists' theory of functions to the structural narrative strategies in the African folktales. This is very significant because it is necessary for the scholar to know whether the format of the African folktale is an unconscious accident or is dictating to other cultures or visa versa.
