The First Story

| | Comments (0)

In response to Kaitlin's comments, I was also troubled at first by Foster's ideas.  I also tried to think of a completely original story.  However, I do not think we know that story today for the simple reason that stories existed before people could write.  Since storytelling has roots in an oral tradition, even the very old stories we do know of, such as "Beowulf" or the various traditions of Noah's Ark, are retellings of the original.  I don't think we will ever find the first story ever told, but the concept is still very interesting.
