- 1001 N is translation, transliteration, adaptation, appropriation...et.etcetra
- What else is like this? Is everything like this?
- Hamlet >strange ______ ?brew >R & G are dead >The Lion King >Sons of Anarchy Among many more! Ur Hamlet (lost)
- So we guess a lot about “Ur Hamlet” from Hamlet; if Hamlet were missing, would we reconstruct it from its descendants? Could we?
- What’s a “survival trait” for a story - memorability - relatability - cultural relevance/resonance?
- If retelling in a new framework is “evolution” and the storyteller is deciding (consciously or not) what to keep/change/discard. That puts them kind of in the role of predator, eliminating traits that don’t support survival!
- We learn about evolution through research into the past- fossils etc. > So where are the fossilized remains of missing stories?
- Analogies sure are fun maybe not so useful
- how do I actually research this when by definition my primary sources don’t exist?
