3: Traces of the Epic in Africa by K. P. WACHSMANN
Reader,
DENYS HAWTHORNE Produced by DOUGLAS CLEVERBON
Epic poetry' requires many ingredients; amongst them are heroic themes, composition in lines, great length, and historic associations. There is some evidence that the peoples of Africa were at one time or another, inclined towards this art form, but conditions were not often favourable to the growth and survival of the epic. But the remaining traces are of interest to students of literature and music alike.
