Summary

Poet and translator Sarah Ruden offers a sparkling new translation of one of our prime sources for archaic Greek mythology, ritual, cosmology, and psychology. 'Some say that you were born, O Stitched-In god, / At windy Icarus or Draconum / Or Naxos or the deep-whirled Alpheus river / To Semele and Zeus who loves the thunder. / Others, my lord, claim Thebes was your beginning -- / Liars. Far off from men, creation's father / Engendered you unknown to white-armed Hera... Hardback edition also available: 0872207269, 24.95.
