ORAL INTERPRETATION.
CAMPBELL, PAUL N.
THE BASIC PREMISE OF THIS BOOK IS THAT LEARNING TO READ ORALLY IS OF FUNDAMENTAL IMPORTANCE TO THOSE WHO WOULD FULLY APPRECIATE OR RESPOND TO LITERATURE. BECAUSE READERS MUST INTERPRET LITERATURE ALWAYS FOR THEMSELVES AND OFTEN FOR AN AUDIENCE, THREE ASPECTS OF ORAL INTERPRETATION ARE EXPLORED--(1) THE CHOICE OF MATERIALS, WHICH REQUIRES AN ANALYSIS OF THE NATURE AND FUNCTION OF LITERATURE, OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN POETRY AND NON-POETRY, OF THE USES OF METAPHOR AND SYMBOLISM, AND OF THE RHYTHMS OF VERSE, (2) THE PREPARATION OF MATERIALS, WHICH INVOLVES AN APPREHENSION OF MEANING AND THE PRACTICE OF SPECIFIC INTERPRETIVE TECHNIQUES, AND (3) THE PERFORMANCE OF MATERIALS, WHICH ENTAILS AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ACTING AND INTERPRETIVE READING, OF THE NATURE OF PERFORMANCE, AND OF THE MENTAL STATE OF THE INTERPRETER. A BIBLIOGRAPHY AND SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES ACCOMPANY EACH SECTION. (THIS PAPERBACK IS PUBLISHED BY THE MACMILLAN COMPANY, NEW YORK, $1.75.) (JB)
