Uncle Remus, You Have a Confusing Language

| No Comments
Listening to the podcast on Nights with Uncle Remus, I feel as though it is much easier to understand what is being read.  If I could find a free copy of an audio recording on the whole book of tales and listen to it.  Since I, myself, was not "bred n bawn" in the area with which this dialect was used, I do not understand it as easily reading it through.  It sort of reminds me of reading Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God.  Reading it through the first few pages was a difficult task, so I had to go back again and flip a switch in my brain that made me read it as the dialect.  It made me understand what I was reading much easier.  However, Uncle Remus' Tales is a little more difficult than Hurston's text.

And on a side note...
