Editorial Reviews

Review

"Myth and Tragedy is a book to be unreservedly welcome for its progressive unfolding of ideas which have proved consistently fertile in new perceptions and for thinking that is in the best sense individual as well as collective." Times Literary Supplement



"What is Dionysiac about Greek tragedy, Vernant suggests, and specific to the genre, is the 'otherness' of the hero, his belonging to an absent world that no longer exists, and the blurring and shifting of the boundaries between illusion and reality that result for the audience.... Myth and Tragedy is a book to be unreservedly welcome for its progressive unfolding of ideas which have proved consistently fertile in new perceptions." Times Literary Supplement
