9780295975245: The Raven Steals the Light

This new edition of a collaboration between one of the finest living artists in North America and one of Canada’s finest poets includes a new introduction by the distinguished anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss. Ten masterful, complex drawings by Bill Reid and ten tales demonstrate the richness and range of Haida mythology, from bawdy yet profound tales of the trickster Raven to poignant, imagistic narratives of love and its complications in a world where animals speak, dreams come real, and demigods, monsters, and men live side by side.

About the Author:

Bill Reid, one of the finest artists to work in the Native American tradition, has numerous books documenting and revering his visual art. He is also the author of Solitary Raven, Out of the Silence and, with Bill Holm, Indian Art of the Northwest Coast: A Dialogue on Craftsmanship and Aesthetics.

Review:

"These are simply the best versions of Indian tales I have read: they are colloquial yet poetic, precise yet spilling outside their boundaries, accumulating and then blending into one another."?Canadian Literature

"The drawings are impressive; the stories are engaging. But the real value of the book lies in the ability of Reid and Bringhurst to recreate the voice of the storyteller and in their ability to capture the sensual qualities of Haida oral literature."?Folklore

"Two artists, in an unusual pairing of talens, have reshaped Haida myths into scenes of Haida prehistoric life that seem told by a modern-day reincarnation of Raven himself."?Western Folklore
