Like three other authors in this issue, Jeff Opland has put his fieldwork, in this case principally among the Xhosa-speaking peoples of South Africa, to excellent use in his writings on oral tradition. As an Africanist and an Anglo-Saxonist, he has contributed important studies in both fields, particularly Anglo-Saxon Oral Poetry (1980) and Xhosa Oral Poetry (1983).
