Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Derived from oral evidence recorded by the Irish Folklore Commission in the 1940's, at the time of the centenary of the Famine, this unique book is based on interviews conducted with thousands of elderly people from around Ireland, who told of the stories they themselves had heard from their ancestors who had survived the Famine. The book is, therefore, about the oral transmission of folk memory.The material in the book is divided into a series of categories which are arranged in an order that follows the rough chronology of the Famine itself. Sample chapters include Folklore and the Famine; Turnips, Blood, Herbs and Fish; The Fever, God Bless Us; Paupers and the Workhouse; Agents, Grabbers and Gombeen Men; The Coffin Ships and the Going Away, and The Migratory Legends of the Famine.

Inhaltsangabe: In the 1940s, the Folklore Commission conducted interviews with thousands of elderly people around Ireland who remembered what they themselves had heard from ancestors who had survived the Famine.

This remarkable book, dealing as it does with the oral transmission of folk memory, is a record of the last living link with the survivors of that terrible event.
