This is the sixth title in a series of titles focussing on the oral literary tradition of various East African ethnic groups – the Maasai, the Embu and the Mbeere amongst others – published by EAEP.

Okumba Miruka, particularly known for his contribution to oral literature in Kenya, sets out to contexualise his subject by first explaining about the Luo people and culture – from migratory patterns and economic activity to the concept of divinity, death, warfare and Luo cuisine and eating culture.

He then approaches the oral literature of the Luo through the genres of riddles, proverbs, poetry and narratives. For each genre, he offers a general introduction, notes on style, convention, performance and social function, and a wide range of samples, or ‘primary texts’ with commentaries.
