Tribal Songs,Ballads And Oral Epics of Bastar, is a study that is perhaps the first of its kind . Folk songs/poetry in Bastar has hitherto been viewed from the perspective of anthropology and/or history. No one yet is known to have ecamined the socio-religious songs/poetry of the tribes in Bastar from the perspective of literary criticism. This is a new turf for studies on tribal societies in India,and to that extent this book breaks new ground and sets new direction for future studies.
The importance of the book , however exttends far beyond liberary criticism. In the words of the authors, "The tribes like those in Bastar have been 'practicing' songs/poetry for ages with an unfailing focus on its relevance to life. The oral songs/poetry of bastar is naturally, instincyively, spontaneously born out of a commitment toward life that reinforces all aspects of trible worldview. To study it is both , an enriching and humbling experience".
Written in a simple, lucid and eminently readable style ,the book is bound to appeal to performing artists, anthropologists, socilogists,literary critics and to any general reader interested in tribal India.
