An African Horizon

Ideals in Shona Lore and Literature

Abraham Kriel

 

Book is out of print.

Synopsis

In this book the author attempts to present the basic symbols, values and ideas manifested in the folklore and recent written literature of the Shona of Rhodesia. It opens with a survey of some of the basic theories about symbolism, folklore and myth.

Review

The author's use of references both in terms of the Shona and in terms of general theory reflects a poor grasp of pertinent literature. The weakness of his book relate to his lack of sufficient background in the study of cultural anthropology. - T. O. Beidelman, Anthropos
