As he challenges classical semiological accounts of cultural representation in this ethnography of Melanesian religious phenomenology, Maschio aims to show that ritual and poetic performance are about the enactment, expression and invention of the self.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Maschio uses the concepts and language of the Rauto people themselves to 'unpack' what might otherwise be considered a human anomaly-a minimalist culture, a people who live a rich emotional life but share the most stringent reservations against its figurative expression." --Roy Wagner, University of Virginia
"A first-rate ethnography of a little-studied area. Maschio reaches back to the ethnographic writings of French Melanesianist Maurice Leenhardt to ground his account of the emotive/expressive self in religious phenomenology. This complex reading of ritual and expressive culture connects with a growing number of contemporary ethnographies that put poetic utterances at the center of cultural articulations of self and society."--James Clifford, series editor
