Editorial Reviews

Review

The book is stylistically well-written and features interesting readings of various texts.

(Marcus Hartner Zeitschrift fuer Anglistik und Amerikanistik)

The author gives herself a refreshingly modest assignment: to demonstrate that a certain cognitive predisposition has contributed to the development of, and continued interest in, specific literary motifs that occur across a wide variety of cultures. This is all that she tries to do, and she does it very well.

(Philosophy and Literature)

Zunshine renders the book accessible to the general reader.

(Aristie Trendel Cercles)

Zunshine’s scholarship here and elsewhere is boldly exploratory.

(Frederick Luis Aldama Substance)
