Hello all,

 

In the Huck text, the authors state, “Questions often arise about which of the available print versions of a tale is the “correct” or authentic text. From a folklorist’s point of view, a tale is recreated every time it is told, and therefore every telling is correct in its own way. A great deal of variation is also acceptable in print versions, where literary style carries the same uniqueness as the teller’s voice” (106).  So is there a right way to tell a story?

 

I am known in my family as being pretty funny.  When I tell a story about something that happened to me and my sister, for instance, I embellish and exaggerate a great deal to make the story better.  My sister says I am lying and I say I am just tell a tall tale.

 

What do you think?  Who’s story is right?  My sister’s boring but true tale or my funny and kind of based on truth tale?  Does it matter?
