Book Description

Nortrop Frye differed from other theorists of myth in tracing all of the major literary genres--romance, comedy, satire, not just tragedy--to myth and ritual. This volume is the most thorough presentation of his thinking on the subject.

Reviews

"...this work offers both depth and comprehensiveness with copious references to other secondary sources." -- Religious Studies Review
"This book will be welcomed by those working across the boundaries of literary theory, mythology and theology. It also stands as a defence of Frye as a radical Christian thinker in his own right, fusing narrative with doctrine." -- Religion
