MEDIA REVIEWS

The study of theories of myth is important for all the 'human sciences, ' ranging from classics to anthropology to history to psychoanalysis, and Robert Segal is at the top of this field. He is very good at what he does. There is no other analysis of theories of myth like this.--Robert Ackerman, author of J. G. Frazer and The Myth and Ritual School


The analytic scholarship in this book is sharp and current, and deals with significant writers. This is a useful collection of critical essays, especially suitable for adoption in undergraduate courses in literature, anthropology, folklore, psychology, and religious studies.--Ivan Strenski, University of California, Riverside
