Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a very meaty volume comprising essays by some of the most distinguished students of religion."--Borimir Jordan, University of California, Santa Barbara


About the Author

Richard Buxton is Professor of Greek Language and Literature at the University of Bristol and the author of several books about ancient Greek literature, including From Myth to Reason (O.U.P., 1999).

More About the Author

Richard Buxton works on ancient Greek literature (especially tragedy), and ancient mythology and religion. One of his main aims is to explore the contexts - for example, social life and the landscape - which can help us to recover the meanings which myths had for their tellers and hearers/readers (see his Imaginary Greece, 1994, and The Complete World of Greek Mythology, 2004).

In 1996 he organized a major international conference at Bristol, whose proceedings appeared as From Myth to Reason? (1999) Since 2003 he has been one of the editors of Thesaurus Cultus et Rituum Antiquorum and since 2006 he has been President of the LIMC Foundation. His book 'Forms of Astonishment: Greek Myths of Metamorphosis' was published in 2009. He will next be revising for publication a selection of his papers on Greek myth and tragedy.

He has taken part in a number of radio programs about myth. His work has been translated into nine languages.
