Praise

"Roberto Calasso’s survey of the renewed interest in myth demonstrates how decisive the gods’ influence was on modern literature. Calasso is not only immensely learned; he is one of the most original thinkers and writers we have today." —Charles Simic

“Calasso can take your breath away.” –The New Yorker

“[A] riveting work of cultural history. . . . Learned, eloquent, and artful.” –The Weekly Standard

“Luminescent. . . . Stimulating. . . . Seduce[s] a reader in search of ideas that entertain as well as edify.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review
