"Michael Roemer's groundbreaking work argues that every story, be it ancient myth or documentary film, is completed before we read or watch it. He explores why a society like ours - predicated on free will - is addicted to tales that neither we, nor the heroes, can control." "Roemer argues that, contrary to both formalist and postmodern aesthetic theories, traditional stories do not create order out of chaos but challenge our order with chaos, undermining the structures we have built to protect ourselves. He finds that stories are both radical and conservative, invalidating our freedom while centering on heroes or heroines who are obliged to act alone; their adventures remove them from the sheltering community. Moreover, their attempt to escape the plot is mandated by the plot itself. Predicated on contradiction, ambiguity, and uncertainty, stories affirm what they deny - just as society both affirms and denies our existence as individuals."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

What is the essence of story? While others have focused on the importance of structure in the art of story, Scheub emphasizes emotion. He shows how an expert storyteller uses structural elements -- image, rhythm, and narrative -- to shape a story's fundamental emotional content. To guide the audience on this emotional journey is the storyteller's art.The traditional stories from South African, Xhosa, and San cultures included in the book lend persuasive support to Scheub's argument. These stories speak for themselves, illustrating that a skilled performer can stir emotions despite obstacles of space, time, and culture.
