Example text

While I am not suggesting that my book will become the germinal history of superheroes or the academic work that ties together all the loose ends of superhero scholarship, I earnestly believe that it is another decisive step in the right direction. In short, this new approach addresses some of the deficiencies of previous work by using studies in orality to provide an overarching explanation of the historical development of the superhero. CHAPTER 2 The Emergence of Orality When Industry Becomes Epic In The Presence of the Word, Walter Ong argues that the most significant problem with studies of oral culture lies with the terminology used to describe oral culture.

This debate about the nature of superhero mythology is important especially in the way that it identifies the cultural dynamic that accounts for the reader in more immediate ways than other print media, like the novel. Regardless, what interests me most is the way that the superhero has been identified as mythology: the fact that the superhero seems to change and yet reactivates a supposedly transcendent mythic sensibility. Despite the fact that superhero comic books are a print medium, the dynamics of their stories and their treatment of the audience resemble what takes place with epics in oral cultures.

In regard to the basic historical schema used to situate orality and literacy in relationship with one another, orality doesn’t always precede literacy in the sense that strict historical development is hard to chart. For instance, the literate society of Rome may have had direct influence and control over the culture of Germany, but oral culture persisted outside the ruling class, and upon the fall of the Roman Empire, Germany returned to orality as a primary means of communicating all forms of knowledge.
