QUIGLEY, Colin. Close to the Floor : Folk Dance in Newfoundland. St. John's: Memorial University of Newfoundland, 1985. First Printing. Pp. i-viii,1-128. 8vo, illustrated grey card covers with black lettering to front cover and spine. Memorial University of Newfoundland Folklore and Language Publications, MonographSeries No. 3. General Editors: Herbert Halpert and David Buchan. Managing Editor: Martin Lovelace. "This book presents an ethnography of the dance traditions which have come to be identified as Newfoundland dance. The vernacular dance traditions in Newfoundland have rarely been recorded, much less systematically described or analyzed. Although they are clearly related to historical dance forms in Britain and their derivatives elsewhere in North America, dance traditions in Newfoundland are distinctive. They reflect the unique characteristics of environment and culture which distinguish this region. My purpose has been to describe the dance movements, social settings, and attitudes which make up these traditions, to examine relationships among them and their roles as an expressive system." - from the introduction. Contents: 1. The People and the Place; 2. The Dances; 3. The Dances in Context; 4. The Dynamics in Context. With list of sources at rear. With two maps. Very good. Uncommon. 35.00
