    Unhappy The Lost Art of Story Telling.

    I remember some of the dead generations telling storues around fires before and as i sat in front of a fire tonight i wondered , "could my generation tell stories like these ppl did?". I dont think so. Its a shame that generations die out and with them go the older arts like storytelling that they relied on to pass many a winters night by the fire.

    Sincerely,
    Westside.

    After studying English at degree level, I have always been fascinated by the format of story telling (as sad as it my seem). For those who are interested in this sort of thing, here is a link to Barthes 5 codes of story telling:
