This study presents the text and translation of an oral epic, or guritan, relating the exploits of Radin Suane, which was recorded during anthropological fieldwork among the Besemah, in the remote highlands of South Sumatra. Documentation of an epic in Besemah, a little known Sumatran-Malay language, will be useful for comparative purposes to specialists in Malaysian and Indonesian languages and literatures. This work is also intended to serve students of ethnography, folklore and oral poetry, as well as general readers who may not be familiar with Sumatran culture. Accordingly, an extensive commentary has been provided to give a cultural context for understanding this epic.

Amsterdamer Beiträge zur neueren Germanistik

Studies in German Literature and Cultural Studies

Edited by William Collins Donahue, Norbert Otto Eke, Sven Kramer and Elizabeth Loentz

This series focuses on contemporary contributions in Germanistik / German Studies. Essay collections and monographs are welcome in either German or English.

The Amsterdamer Beiträge zur neueren Germanistik (founded in 1972) is a series for themed-anthologies and monographs offering state-of-the-art research in the field of German-language literature(s) and cultural studies from 1700 onwards. Our mission remains to publish high quality research including new discussions of established authors, research on heretofore neglected masterpieces, as well as the consideration of German literary studies as a discipline both within and beyond the academy. Consequently, the series offers a venue for a variety of genres rediscovered in literature and cultural studies, including the study of the essay, literary biographies and periodicals. We also welcome studies in which German literature is treated in connection with other disciplines such as media studies, the fine arts, as well as the natural sciences.

All submissions are subject to a double blind peer review process prior to publication.


Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Masja Horn.


The series published an average of 1,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.
