Editorial Reviews

Review

One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 1991

"Vernant's work ranges across the entire field of ancient Greek religion, philosophy, and literature and joins exacting philological scholarship to exciting and innovative theoretical paradigms. Not since Jane Harrison and Gilbert Murray has a classicist commanded the attention of non-classicists in the way Vernant has over the last twenty-five years."--Choice

Format: Hardcover
Thoughtful and thought-provoking little volume. Students of psychology, C.G. Jung, philosophy, ancient mythology and the humanities will find excellent material.
Of note are the discussions on intricacies surrounding a Heroic, Beautiful Death (as with warriors in battle, investigates preservation of eternal vigor, postmortem mutilation vs. funereal pyres, etc - beginnings of Christian beatification?)
Numerous in depth and fascinating ideas are presented throughout... Even if you know very little of Greek culture, you'll want to read this book.
