Cody D. Delistraty explains his ideas of story telling within his article called, ” The Psychological Comforts of Storytelling”. Delistraty tracks back storytelling all the way back to ancient times to when information used to once be written on tablets and when the Epic of Gilgamesh was written. He explains how stories are told and why they were told. He explains multiple reasons, however, I am able to unite and connect with his reason to “inform people’s emotional lives” and to keep track of them as memories. I feel that it is always important to tell stories for this reason in order to share and spread the ideas learned.
