Review by clancysmith
~ Kerenyi has often been tarred with a Jungian brush, but in this early and independent work, he admirably displays his intimate knowledge of the language, art and traditions of the Greek peoples. He also consistently delves to the most ancient known source of a myth for its telling, to the benefit of all layman scholars.
