MEDIA REVIEWS

"A brilliant strategy - to read the narratives of the gods as linguistic embodiments of limit-questions. This is a remarkable book. The author coaxes insight and mystery from a wide range of classical scriptures and contemporary literature - all the while engaging opposing as well as supportive arguments for her claims. Graced with elegant writing and touched with irony and occasional humor, this book can elicit wonder as well as appreciation." - Mary Gerhart, Professor of Religious Studies Emerita, Hobart and William Smith College
