This small yet extremely rich volume, now in its second edition and having been translated into a variety of European and non-European languages, can today be regarded as a classic... [a] remarkable overview of modern theories of myth. * Angus Nicholls, Religion *
This admirably clear and sensibly priced volume, although 'very short', is also very comprehensive * Juliette Wood, Folklore *
Science Fiction readers, and more so writers, may well find this short introduction to myth of interest. SF has drawn on mythological tropes from supermen (including Superman) and technology with, and imparting, god-like powers, through to flights to the heavens. * Concatenation, Jonathan Cowie *
