The Path Is Open: The Herskovitses' Legacy in African Oral Narrative Analysis and BeyondPublic Deposited
This paper was commissioned by the Program of African Studies (PAS) as a complement to the new edition of Dahomean Narrative that was published by Northwestern University Press as part of the celebration of the PAS’s fiftieth anniversary. The new forward to the volume places Dahomean Narrative within the history of the work of Melville and Frances Herskovits. The Path is Open, by Olabiyi B. Yai, an eminent scholar of African oral literature and especially the oral literature of Bénin, examines Dahomean Narrative as a contribution to the study of African oral arts.
