My Analysis The Choking Doberman by Jan Harold Brunvand is a collection of urban legends and their meanings andor origins It discusses various urban legends and there apparent meanings Each chapter provides several versions of a single legend and several other related legends along with Brunvands synopsis of each and quotes from people he surveyed Jan Harold Brunvand 1933-present was born in Cadillac Michigan He received his PhD in Language Arts at Indiana University and went on to teach English and folklore at the University of Utah 1966 His early publications included work on Indiana Utah and Alberta folklore in the 1980s he published several collections of American urban legends including The Choking Doberman and other new urban legends 1984 A paragraph relating the authors background to the color and flavor of the text in The Choking Doberman would be included here But the text andor wording in the book is colorless and flavorless and it exhibits no feeling in the words It is plain and from all points of view Blah In fact the most emotion Brunvand uses in the entire book is used in this one sentence The most fascinating ones I received were the Mannebach 2 stories that incorporated thoroughly up-to-date references and thus might represent actual new urban legends 1 The audience intended for this book is anyone of high school age or older
