5.0 out of 5 stars Two intellectual forces collide to create a treasured book, May 21, 2012
This review is from: The Invention of Jane Harrison (Revealing Antiquity) (Paperback)
Two great intellectual forces collide to create a treasured book here and these two forces are Mary Beard, a British feminist (arguably) scholar of the classics, and her forebearer, Jane Harrison. Much has been made of the contemporary relevance of Jane Harrison story, but this book more than proves that tales of early twentieth century women professionals and their complex struggles for recognition have much to shed light on human relations today. Moreover, save for the nitpicking of a few academics in classics who are besotted with micromanaging their own and others' reputations and legacies, it is clear from this book that Jane Harrison had a matchless way with teasing out the larger human significance of Greek spiritualism from 19th century discovered evidence more than demonstrates the continuing endurance of her work. Five much deserved stars.
