Any student of Western history knows the legendary tales of Homer. Likewise, any student of Eastern history knows of the stories told by Vyasa and Valmiki recorded in the ancient Hindu epics. But it takes a special lover of history to compare these great works – The Iliad, The Odyssey, Mahabharata, and Ramayana – with others to show how the epic is one of the most foundational genres of storytelling in any civilization.
In Lore and Lays of the Ancient Bards, Steven Alan Segall places these stories alongside one another to compare and contrast the myths of the ancient East, Near East, and West. Thousands of years of history, legend, and faith flow into the heart of Segall’s writing, and the reader comes to appreciate what the different myths share and what makes them unique. Greek, Indian, Roman, and Jewish history are at your fingertips.
Lore and Lay of the Ancient Bards is your port of departure for experiencing the history and faith of people the world over.
