9780819186577: Thelxis: Magic and Imagination in Greek Myth and Poetry

Thelxis means "enchantment". This is not a book about real magic in Greek society but about idealized conceptions of magic in Greek myth and poetry. The author focuses on the magic in Greek myth and poetry from Homer to Theocritus, before the period of the Roman Empire. He does not hesitate to draw analogies from elsewhere, and on occasion he can be speculative.
