Reviews

Jean-Pierre Vernant has profoundly transformed our perceptions of ancient Greece. Published in 1991, this collection of nineteen essays probes deeply into themes of enduring interest--death, the body, the soul, the individual, and relations between mortals and immortals; the mask, the mirror, the image, and the imagination; the self and the other, and, more broadly, the concept of otherness itself, or "alterity."

Review:

"Vernant's work ranges across the entire field of ancient Greek religion, philosophy, and literature and joins exacting philological scholarship to exciting and innovative theoretical paradigms. Not since Jane Harrison and Gilbert Murray has a classicist commanded the attention of non-classicists in the way Vernant has over the last twenty-five years."--Choice

Endorsement:

"This work will be the definitive Vernant textbook for students and scholars alike in the English-speaking world. . . . Froma Zeitlin is in my view America's foremost expert on the work of Vernant. . . ."--Gregory Nagy, Harvard University
