A Short History Of Myth Paperback / softback
Part of the Canons series
As long as we have been human, we have been mythmakers.
In A Short History of Myth, Karen Armstrong holds up the mirror of mythology to show us the history of ourselves, and embarks on a journey that begins at a Neanderthal graveside and ends buried in the heart of the modern novel.
Surprising, powerful and profound, A Short History of Myth examines the world's most ancient art form - the making and telling of stories - and why we still need it. The Myths series brings together some of the world's finest writers, each of whom has retold a myth in a contemporary and memorable way.
Authors in the series include Karen Armstrong, Margaret Atwood, A.S.
Byatt, David Grossman, Natsuo Kirino, Alexander McCall Smith, Philip Pullman, Ali Smith and Jeanette Winterson.
