The Sacred Songs of Hula (Unwritten Literature of Hawaiʻi)

Product Description
$24.95
Maximum quantity available reached.

This book is a fascinating account of Hawaii's native dance and the sacred songs that accompanied it. The songs, and poems, presented both in the original Hawaiian and in English translation--a number of them with their music--constitute a ready-made anthology that includes every species of composition in the whole range of Hawaiian poetry.

Hawaiian art, dance, music and poetry were highly integrated into every aspect of life, to a degree far beyond that of industrial society. The poetry at the core of the hula is extremely sophisticated and has several dimensions: mythological aspects, cultural implications, and an ecological setting. The extensive footnotes and background information allow us an unprecedented look into these deeper layers.
