Editorial Reviews

Review

With learning that is impressive but lightly worn, he follows the varied fortunes of the god from early Greece to the present day.... Boardman passes very lightly over the fact that the Christians took some of Pan's feature for their devil.... But that is on e of the few themes about which one could have hoped for more comment in Boardman's delightful book. -- The New York Review of Books, Jasper Griffin

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
John Boardman's book is short but full of insights on the Great God Pan from origins until modern times.

His prose flows like a gentle stream that carries one dreamily along. And the text is enriched by numerous images.

There was an ancient rumor that the Great God Pan died but this book shows he is alive and flourishing.
