My Golden Moon Glass An Anthology of Folk Songs and Stories

Author Name: Phebe Angus G. | Format: Paperback | Genre : Language Studies | Other Details

Why was Velan trying to amuse Vali?

How do the dynamics of love emerge?

What is the connection between the planting, the harvest, the coming of age, the lullaby and the lament?

Wherefore does the ancient song rise and whither does it go?

What hidden mysteries are embedded in the beats of the drum, in the growth of the creepers and in the golden moon glass?

As we share the tale that is told and retold – of a song that is sung through the ages – there is something that touches our consciousness. Every breath that is now in print is a captured sign of sighs, woes, anguish, celebration, colours, fragrances, delight and the magical lore of the past. My Golden Moon Glass is a time machine that will help you explore what we have lost and reminisce the presence of the past within our shared consciousness.

Phebe Angus G.

Phebe Angus G. has been teaching as an Assistant professor at Madras Christian College since 2008. Since childhood, she has been captivated by the magic, fantasy and colourful depictions of folk literature. This motivated her to do her research in Archetypal Criticism with reference to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series as a part of her Master of Philosophy programme. Being inspired by the wisdom ingrained in folk tradition, she undertook a project to collect folk songs and stories from select locales in Tamil Nadu. She believes that documentation of folk tradition is very important to preserve the greatness of our culture and to pass it on to the next generation. She is a multi-faceted person and her research interests lie in Indian writing in English, Women’s writing, music and literature and teaching the English language. She resides in Chennai.
