Drawing on a magnificent array of assets together with trip narratives, elocution manuals, theological writings, ballad collections, and felony documents, McDowell re-creates an international within which everybody from fishwives to philosophers, priests to road hucksters, competed for area and audiences in taverns, marketplaces, and the road. She argues that the earliest confident efforts to theorize "oral tradition," and to depict renowned oral tradition as a tradition (rather than a lack of culture), have been brought on much less by means of any protodemocratic impulse than by means of a profound ache with new cultures of studying, writing, or even talking formed by means of print.


Challenging conventional versions of oral as opposed to literate societies and key assumptions approximately culture’s ties to the spoken and the written observe, this landmark research reorients severe conversations throughout eighteenth-century experiences, media and communications reports, the background of the booklet, and beyond.
