by | Read by Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Contemporary Culture • 60 min. • Audio Program • ©

An unusual mix of stories and analysis make up this program, which emphasizes the nature of the oral tradition and storytelling. We hear three stories, which are intended to be both comforting and didactic. Clarissa Pinkola Estes describes the impact, both physical and pyschological, each story has upon the listener and relates how the oral tradition changed the tale to suit the times. The author's Jungian training permeates her analyses. Pinkola Estes reads the tales in a quiet tone, well-suited to the text. The stories are differentiated from the commentary by a slight shift in phrasing and emphasis. Audio is a most suitable format for this program.
