The Golden Bough : A Study in Comparative Religion, Paperback / softback Book

The Golden Bough : A Study in Comparative Religion Paperback / softback

Part of the Canongate Classics series


Published originally in two volumes in 1890, this extraordinary study of primitive myth and magic, collected from sources around the world, led Frazer to identify parallel patterns of ritual, symbols and belief across many centuries and many different cultures.

Frazer's learning inspired a whole generation of ethnographers and comparative anthropologists, and had a particularly powerful effect on many other thinkers and writers such as Sigmund Freud, D H Lawrence, Joyce, Yeats and T S Eliot.
