About this Item

224 pages, illustrated. "This book uncovers a dark, fanciful, pagan side of the medieval mind. It describes a phase of medieval civilization which has been almost entirely overlooked, correcting the traditional emphasis on theology and chivalry. These mythological figures, the wild man and his even more fantastic mate the wild woman, are viewed from every angle, from the theatrical to the scholarly, and above all from the human angle, for there was much that was touching or humorous about them. Wild men could not be classified by any Linnaean system of demonology. They had their own complex aspects and affinities, appearing as dwarfs or giants or satyrs, as demons of death or of fertility, as noble savages or lovers in the woods, as insane men or desperadoes." VERY GOOD HARDCOVER, GOOD DUST JACKET. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 019927
