9781138936010: Companion to Literary Myths, Heroes and Archetypes (Routledge Revivals)

First published in French in 1988, and in English in 1992, this companion explores the nature of the literary myth in a collection of over 100 essays, from Abraham to Zoroaster. Its coverage is international and draws on legends from prehistory to the modern age throughout literature, whether fiction, poetry or drama.

Essays on classical figures, as well as later myths, explore the origin, development and various incarnations of their subjects. Alongside entries on western archetypes, are analyses of non-European myths from across the world, including Africa, China, Japan, Latin America and India.

This book will be indispensable for students and teachers of literature, history and cultural studies, as well as anyone interested in the fascinating world of mythology. A detailed bibliography and index are included.

‘The Companion provides a fine interpretive road map to Western culture’s use of archetypal stories.’ Wilson Library Review

‘It certainly is a comprehensive volume... extremely useful.’ Times Higher Education Supplement
