For tellers today, traditional tales are like a form of classical music. The patterns are known and resonant. In so many ways our work will naturally — whether we know it or not—reflect back to these oldies and goldies. Forty years ago when I was training as a mythopoeic literary critic I understood that such tales are the building blocks of the imagination. Shakespeare knew this. He took known tales and reworked them so that audiences would find new depth and new satisfactions with these old narrative modules. Such tales have a potentially seminal role in the repertoire of modern tellers as well.
All stories syncopate against or play with ancient structural patterns. There are no new tales, just new ways to tell the patterns already woven into our psyches. The more familiar we are with story-tradition the potentially freer and more resonant our tellings. We are always working within a lineage of tale-telling that extends easily back 40, years — whether we know it or not. But with this recognition comes a host of questions.
What are the duties, obligations and rights of such tellings? Where do issues of universal imagination and specific authenticity, fit in? Who owns traditional tales, and what is legitimate for us as literate, mostly urban, tv, movie and book imprinted tellers to do with them without violating the bonds of story-ethic? Is a story once removed from direct oral experience published in a book or magazine fair game?
Or how about — can a Christian teller legitimately tell a story from the Torah meaning anything from the Old Testament! Or can a Native American storyteller use an Italian tale? Can a Black teller tell a Jack tale? How much do we trust the imagination and depth of the teller, and how much the rules of village storytelling? Or genetics? How far do we want to narrow the limitless ability of the imagination to become — anything?
Should Eric Clapton not play the blues? My own experience lies here — as writer and teller. My first books were Greek Myths and Arthurian Tales. Grown, I studied myth and literature. What stories do I have the right to tell? Jewish and personal? Jewish, personal, and Buddhist? What about my literary background? And what about my experiences with Native communities and with meditation experiences that connect with Native insights? I have a Zuni friend who has been posting Buddhist material on FB.
Can she now tell Buddhist tales?
