FROM THE PUBLISHER - In this book Cesare Pavese, recognized as one of Italy's finest modern writers, has re-entered the ancient world of Greek myth — with the eyes of twentieth-century man. On the hills of Thessaly and the sunlit beaches of Mediterranean islands doomed heroes, immortal gods and strange beasts come to life again — Orpheus and Eurydice, Leucothea and Ariadne, Prometheus and Dionysus, Achilles and Patroclus, satyrs and chimeras, centaurs and werewolves. In this series of imaginary dialogues Pavese adds new dimensions to the most enduring themes of man's experience, revealing, with a completely fresh approach, how the sufferings, passions and conflicts portrayed in the myths have an application for all time. Pavese, with his contemporaries, considered DIALOGUES WITH LEUCO to be his finest work. It is certainly among the more beautiful and unusual achievements to be found in modern literature. $35' Marked In Pen At Top Corner Of Front Free Endpaper, Otherwise Very Good Very Good In Dustjacket.
