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.


"…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
