Sample text

She starts off with the assumption that all stories make a point about their taleworld and that that point is a reflection of cultural values and norms. In her own terms; What stories can be about is to a very significant extent culturally constrained: stories, whether fictional or non-fictional, formal or often told or spontaneously generated can have as their point culturally salient material generally agreed upon by members of the producer’s culture to be self-evidently important and tree.

Neither author set out to explore the linguistic or symbolic aspects that differentiate the realization of the same themes in different cul tures, or the parlicularities of the telling of stories in social circumstances.
