Reviews of : Once Upon a Virus: AIDS Legends and Vernacular Risk Perception by Diane E. Goldstein PDF Book
Inside this Book – This was a required text for my Folk Narrative course. The subject is intriguing; I read Paul Farmer’s “AIDs and Accusation” and loved it so I was hoping that this text by Goldstein would fall along the same lines for me and it did. While the subject is the same, the locations are very different. Once Upon a Virus (UPV) is set in Newfoundland for the majority, but also back in the United States, as Goldstein gives examples from both areas in her text. The way that we see specific things in our culture and the way that our culture affects and changes ideas or perceptions is amazing. This book only made that more clear; what we know or come to believe about the AID’s virus is what we have heard about it from [urban] legends and rumor, in fact, the legends and rumors around the virus are actually what shapes what it is to us culturally. This idea was hard for me to get at first, but once explained to me, it made so much sense.
Inside this book –Once Upon a Virus: AIDS Legends and Vernacular Risk Perception PDF Book by Diane E. Goldstein – Out to see America and satisfy his travel bug, W. T. Pfefferle resigned from his position as director of the writing program at Johns Hopkins University and hit the road to interview sixty-two poets about the significance of place in their work. The lively conversations that resulted may surprise with the potential meanings of a seemingly simple concept. This gathering of voices and ideas is illustrated with photo and word portraits from the road and represented with suitable poems.
