Subject: Help on the authenticity of texts
(cross-posted to Perform-l, Ortrad, Folklore, Humanist)
I am writing on behalf of a former student, Roni Biran, who is writing a
doctoral dissertation in Yiddish folklore, on a storyteller called Berl
Werblunsky. She seeks help in assessing whether texts of stories attributed to
him are in his personal style. Any help you could provide in directing her to
material on establishing the authenticity of texts--written or
oral/transcribed--would be greatly appreciated. Please write to me privately.
