The Ballad Matrix book. After reading McCarthy's small book about the ballads of Agnes Lyle, one is likely to think that the Scots ballad tradition is more reminiscent of modern death metal than "Danny Bo. Ms. Lyle was a very angry sort of lass, it would seem, and the twenty-three ballads McCarthy examines (collected by J. F. Child in the nineteenth century, and presumably comprising Lyle's entire repertoire) are a rather nasty, brutish, depressing lot.
The ballad wars have not ended. Beyond these controversies the book still has a great deal to offer in support of a theory of ballad composition. McCarthy enters the field armed with the ballad repertoire of Agnes Lyle, daughter of a weaver from Renfrewshire in southwest Scotland. McCarthy draws heavily on oral-formulaic theory in his analysis and in fact states that one of the goals of his study is to assess the validity of this theory to ballad scholarship. McCarthy's argument pivots on the insights gained from considering patterns found in Agnes Lyle's repertoire as a whole-patterns lost in studies that focus on comparisons between single ballad texts.

Oral tradition, or oral lore, is a form of human communication wherein knowledge, art, ideas and cultural material is received, preserved and transmitted orally from one generation to another. The transmission is through speech or song and may include folktales, ballads, chants, prose or verses. In this way, it is possible for a society to transmit oral history, oral literature, oral law and other knowledge across generations without a writing system, or in parallel to a writing system.
