Maori Books

Maori Oral Tradition: He Korero no Te Ao Tawhito is useful to teachers and students of Maori language and the oral literature - offering an accessible introduction to the oral compositions, and of interest to students of comparative literature and translation studies. * Unlike other publications which refer to singular aspects of Maori oral tradition - such as song or sayings - this text combines them all into a big picture treatise. * Maori Oral Tradition: He Korero no Te Ao Tawhito features not only well-documented stories and songs, but also uncovers many new discoveries and little-known literary gems.
