Editorial Reviews

Review

Dazzling display of erudition and sometimes brilliant insights... Advanced students of mythology will find illumination in these pages.

(Penelope Murray Journal of Classics Teaching)

Anyone with an interest in either the theory of myth interpretation or any of the particular mythic complexes Detienne engages will find this a fascinating and provocative book.

(Radcliffe G. Edmonds III Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

What makes this book vitally important is Marcel Detienne's deep understanding of ancient Greek myth in its cultural context. Everything he writes here has been carefully thought through on many scholarly levels: I read here the best kind of work in philology, history, anthropology, and philosophy. On the surface, Detienne makes it all look so easy, but it is the hardest kind of research effort that has produced this brilliant collection of investigations.

(Gregory Nagy, Harvard University)
