The Two Traditions The Two Traditions
Gerald Thomas

Price: $19.95CDN
Newfoundland is well-known for the strong traditions and folklore of its English-speaking inhabitants. Until recently, however, few outside this province realized that there is also a small but vigorous Francophone population, situated mainly on the west coast of the island in and around the Port au Port Peninsula. Their culture and folklore, and specifically their storytelling tradi- tions, are the focus of this work by noted folklorist and Memorial University professor Gerald Thomas. Thomas has conducted extensive and exhaustive research on the Port au Port Peninsula for more than twenty years, focusing on, though not limited to, the music and storytelling traditions of the French people and culture. The Two Traditions examines private and public storytelling in Franco-Newfoundland communities, through the study of the repertoire, context and lives of three people: Mrs. Blanche Ozon, Mrs. Angela Kerfont, and Emile Benoit.
