Editorial Reviews

Review

"A sterling example of classical scholarship, literary exegesis, and cultural inference. . . . Not only does this book tell us much about man, through his prototypical image, but also much about the Greek civilization which created Prometheus in its image."--Contemporary Psychology

Format: Paperback
Kerenyi's book on Prometheus is among the most exciting monographs on a single mythological figure written since the mid-twentieth century. Kerenyi reviews the origins of the myth of Prometheus in early Greek poetry and the visual arts with thought-provoking references to other mythological, artistic, and literary traditions such as the Hittite, the Roman, and the German. Kerenyi worked closely with Carl Jung (see their jointly authored Introduction to a Science of Mythology) and the Jungian interest in archetypes is strongly refelcted in the present volume on Prometheus. This book is well-researched and well-written, worth reading not only for the information that it contains about the firebearer, but also for its method of analysis.

Prometheus is the 4th "pagan Christ" and this is a great treatment of him and more importantly of the titans in general. Kerenyi is the Jungian mythologist who collaborated with Jung himself and while Campbell is great Kerenyi zeroes in on the most important of mythologies for an understanding of the human psyche in archetypal terms.
