University of Toronto Press | 2004 | ISBN: 0802086950 | 487 pages | siPDF | 9.8 MB
In the 1970s and 80s, Northrop Frye and Jay Macpherson co-taught a very influential course at the University of Toronto's Victoria College on the history of Western mythology—Frye focusing on the biblical myths; Macpherson on the classical. Biblical and Classical Myths
recreates the thought behind that course, with Frye's lectures—unpublished until very recently—supplemented by Macpherson's popular 1962 textbook on classical mythology, Four Ages: The Classical Myths
. By complementing the biblical tradition with the classical, this volume imparts a comprehensive understanding of western mythology.
