The verbal storytelling tradition existed long before it was documented in manuscripts by researchers. The forms are known as the tales of penglipurlara (storytellers), regular tales, epic tales, myths, ballad and memoir. The agents of speech are proverbs, poems, lyrics, regulations, pantun, phrases, riddles and many more. This book details the analyses of verbal storytelling from the aspects of motives, behaviours and the magical elements, which are regularly laced in its theme.
