The Three Twins: The Telling of a South Indian Folk Epic
Beck, Brenda E. F.1982
Study of a popular south Indian folk epic. Beck takes a folk epic and shows how it can be analyzed as both text and performance, drawing its structure, imagery, and value from the context of Sanskrit epics on one hand, and local models of heroism and chastity on the other.
