The Storyteller Summary : A visitor from Peru, happening upon an exhibition of photographs from the Amazon jungle in an obscure Florentine picture gallery, finds his attention drawn to a picture of a tribal storyteller seated among a circle of Michiguenga Indians. There is something odd about the storyteller. He is too light-skinned to be an Indian. As the visitor stares at the photograph, it dawns on him that he knows this man. The storyteller is his long-lost friend, Saul Zuratas, his classmate from university who was thought to have disappeared in Israel. The Storyteller is a brilliant and compelling study of the world of the primitive and its place in our own modern lives.

The Story of the Storyteller Summary : This book traces the history of an engaging character, a writer, who acts as the narrator and protagonist of three of Vargas Llosa's novels. InLa tía Julia y el escribidor he recalls his apprenticeship, in Historia de Mayta he reflects upon the practice of his craft, and inEl hablador he ponders the significance of his vocation. That this fictional character closely resembles his flesh-and-blood creator only adds to his allure. Because the three novels in question have such strong structural and thematic links, it proves quite helpful to conceive of them as a trilogy. Indeed, the connections are so pronounced that a significant synergistic effect results from considering the three together. It is this effect that this volume brings light as it analyzes how each novel functions as a separate entity, how these entities are integrated into a greater whole, and how this whole fits into the wider picture of the Peruvian author's long and prolific literary career. As students and scholars alike will find, thinking in terms of a trilogy greatly enhances our understanding and appreciation of Vargas Llosa's rich narrative.

THE STORYTELLER Summary : Over the years, a myriad of authors have used fiction as a vehicle through which they seek to illuminate major biblical events and deepen the understanding of the role of pivotal individuals within the Bible. However, never before have we seen events and characters portrayed as such through the eyes, ears and commentary of the Chosen Creatures of the Renewing who serve as witnesses to all that transpires. Part fantasy, part allegory, this imaginative tale will draw you into a world that will captivate and intrigue you. The Storyteller takes the reader through the purity and innocence of those days in the Garden, to the Fall of Man with its devastating effects, not only upon Adam and Eve, but upon all of creation, to the conflicts and struggles that engulf humanity as all find that they can no longer readily hear the voice of the Storyteller. Come join the majestic Lion, Judah, as he leads the others to the hidden valley that stands outside the ruined Garden. There under the Great Tree, guarded by the Beautiful and Terrible Creature with the flaming sword, you will meet the delightful Honeybee, the gentle Lamb, the wise Ram, and the stubborn Donkey along with the others. See a world you had no idea existed come alive before your very eyes. In opening this book, expect not simply to read, but instead to embark upon a journey that will take you into the heart, mind, and soul of the men, women, and creatures of the Storyteller’s hand. You will meet the Storyteller’s enemy, the Dark One, in the form of the beast who enters into a horrific battle with David. You will watch Noah and his wife and family share an experience never before documented in the annals of men. And you will fall in love with the animals and the understanding that they bring to life as it was and will be. Take a journey of hope that will lead you with certainty to your own place of Renewal.

The Return of the Storyteller in Contemporary Fiction Summary : Focusing on the figure of the storyteller, this study breaks new ground in the approach to reading contemporary literature by identifying a growing interest in storytelling. For the last thirty years contemporary fiction has been influenced by theoretical discourses, textuality and writing. Only since the rise of postcolonialism have academic critics been more overtly interested in stories, where high theory frameworks are less applicable. However, as we move through various contemporary contexts engaging with postcolonial identities and hybridity, to narratives of disability and evolutionary accounts of group and individual survival, a common feature of all is the centrality of story, which posits both the idea of survival and the passing on of traditions. This book closely examines this preoccupation with story and storytelling through a close reading of sixteen contemporary international novels written in English which are about actual 'storytellers', revealing how death of the author has given birth to the storyteller.
