The Medusa Reader

£14.99

Product description

Published in 2003 by Routledge

An amazing anthology of the history of Medusa from the original words by Homer to contemporary poems and portraits. Although an academic work this will also be of interest to the general reader with any interest in the Greek myths. It contains some 32 photographs and an extensive index.

From its beginning, the story of Medusa has fascinated and terrified listeners and readers--for what is most compelling in this myth is Medusa's intrinsic doubleness: the woman who could turn a careless onlooker to stone has become a symbol of all that is irresistible. The Medusa Reader was the first major anthology of primary and critical material on this enigmatic figure. Collecting all the essential passages and commentary of Medusa from classical times to pop culture, this collection will appeal to art historians, feminists, classicists, cultural critics, and anyone interested in mythology and the arts.

This is a good clean copy showing very little sign of any wear and tear, apart from a crease across the top right hand of the cover.
