Críticas:

"A collection of myths from the Yoruba branch of Afro-Cuban religions, the Spanish original of this book (1938) was a pioneer publication in the field. Lachatanere interviewed a practitioner of the most widespread Afro-Cuban religion; taking special care to maintain the oral style in the development of the stories, he reveals the freshness of the narrator's perspective as he outlines the cosmological fabric created by the encounter of the African people with the Catholic religion. The book includes stories of important deities, that will help the reader understand the conceptual world of the believers. Those interested in learning about Afro-Cuban music, art, and poetry will find in this translation an introductory manual to the language, certain foods used in ceremonies, and the role of divination and figures such as the trickster. Jorge Castellanos, a scholar who has published widely on the influence of African culture on Cuban society, provides an introduction that places the author's work in its social and cultural context. The volume includes a short glossary and a selection of songs and prayers dedicated to the deities. Summing up: Recommended. General readers." ���O.B. Gonzalez, Loyola University for Choice Magazine

Reseña del editor:

African cults and religions enrich all aspects of Cuba's social, cultural and everyday life, and encompass all ethnic and social groups. Politics, art, and civil events such as weddings, funerals, festivals and carnivals all possess distinctly Afro-Cuban characteristics. Miguel Barnet provides a concise guide to the various traditions and branches of Afro-Cuban religions. He distinguishes between the two most important cult forms - the Regla de Ocha (Santeria), which promotes worship of the Oshira (gods), and the traditional oracles that originated in the old Yoruba city of lle-lfe', which promote a more animistic worldview. Africans who were brought to Cuba as slaves had to recreate their old traditions in their new Caribbean context. As their African heritage collided with Catholicism and with Native American and European traditions, certain African gods and traditions became more prominent while others lost their significance in the new Afro-Cuban culture. This book, the first systematic overview of the syncretization of the gods of African origin with Catholic saints, introduces the reader to a little-known side of Cuban culture.

Descripción Markus Wiener Publishers. Hardcover. Condición: New. 156 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.This book deals with the myths of the orishas. Since it was published in 1938 under the title Oh, Mo Yemay!, it has become a classic in the field. It was the first attempt in Cuba to gather a sizeable sample of the numerous patakes or myths characteristic of the Regla de Ocha or Santera, the most widespread of the Afro-Cuban religions practiced on the island. The author had to overcome prejudice that considered the religion and its associated literature undeserving of intellectual attention and at the same time penetrate the secrecy in which black believers cloaked their beliefs and practices, fearful with good reason of attracting disdain, desecration, and persecution. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Nº de ref. del artículo: 9781558763173
