About the Author:

Marjorie Garber is William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of English at Harvard, where she is also Chair of the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies, Director of the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, and Director of the Humanities Center. Her ninth and most recent book is Quotation Marks, also published by Routledge.
Nancy Vickers is President of Bryn Mawr College, where she is also Professor of Italian, French, and Comparative Literature. She has published widely in the fields of literary and cultural studies, with particular interests in Dante, Renaissance poetry, and the technologies of lyric production.

From Library Journal:

The mythological figure of Medusa, the Gorgon with writhing snakes for hair whose very sight turned the unwary to stone, has been used in everything from poetry to sculpture and painting, from Star Trek episodes and designations for psychoanalytical syndromes to the logo of a modern fashion designer. In their introduction, editors Garber (English, Harvard) and Vickers (president of Bryn Mawr) touch on the parallel strands of the Medusa legend: beauty and ugliness, feminism and misogyny, and fascination and terror. Because all of the elements of these paradoxes are present in any use of the story, this reader is organized chronologically rather than thematically, though the bibliography is divided to provide for such searching and the index is cross-referenced as well. A valuable addition to all mythology and folklore collections and even art collections, this is recommended for public and academic libraries as well as secondary-level school libraries. Katherine K. Koenig, Ellis Sch., Pittsburgh
