Examines the centrality of verbal arts in social life and the dynamic roles of verbal artists as religious and political leaders, as guardians of tradition, as well as agents of cultural change. The subtitle highlights its emphasis on poetics and social change, poetics and gender politics, the poetics of violence, and of pacifism, tropes in social and historical contexts, and on colonialism, ethnic identity and political power.

Herminia Meñez Coben, Ph.D. in Folklore and Folklife from the University of Pennsylvania, was professor of American Multicultural Studies at California State University, Sonoma, and taught “Philippine Folklore and Society” at the University of California, Los Angeles. She is the author of Folklore Communication among Filipinos in California (1980) and Explorations in Philippine Folklore (1996).
