Facing the Fiend by Eva Marta Baillie Book Resume:

Satan is not a theological concept, but a literary character. Systematic and pastoral theology struggles with the existence of Satan and at the same time, the devil inspires authors, poets, artists, and musicians--his true nature in art seems to be creative, even though he is usually associated with destruction. If we want to believe William Blake, the true poet is of the devil's party, without knowing it. The various accounts of the devil in literature and art would certainly promote the theory that Satan himself is working on the side of the artist. While the biblical canon leaves us with many open questions about Satan, the literary canon gives more than enough definitions and interpretations of the devil. Satan is a powerful literary figure, the eternal adversary, object and subject of the story. Without any real substance, he exists in the realm of the narrative, being at the same time destroyer and creator. Satan lends a face to what we experience as evil: the absence of relation, the exile of the soul, the loss of identity, the destruction of the other and the self.

Μυθολογία της Αρχαίας Ελλάδος by Paul Decharme Book Resume:

Το βραβευμένο από την Γαλλική Ακαδημία έργο του Paul Decharme Μυθολογία της Αρχαίας Ελλάδας καταγίνεται με το θέμα των μύθων της αρχαιότητας. Η ελληνική σφραγίδα στην μυθολογία των λαών της γης είναι αναμφισβήτητα ο ανθρωπομορφισμός. Το σύγγραμμα αναλύει τα ονόματα των θεών αλλά και τα επίθετά τους, αναφέρεται σε δευτερεύουσες θεότητες, στους δαίμονες του πυρός (Προμηθέας, Κάβειροι), σε θεότητες του ανθρώπινου βίου (Υγεία, Ειλείθυια, Ασκληπιός), θεότητες της θάλασσας (Νηρεύς, Άτλας, Ποσειδών, Αμφιτρίτη, Σειρήνες) και των γλυκών νερών (Ποταμοί, Νύμφες), στην Γαία, στην Δήμητρα, στον Άδη, στον Βάκχο, στους Σειληνούς, στον Ηρακλή, στον Κάδμο, στον Οιδίποδα και σε άλλους. Διακρίνει χρονολογικά τους μύθους, εξετάζει την προέλευσή τους, ερευνά θεογονικούς και κοσμογονικούς μύθους. Ως πηγές στην σύνταξη του έργου αλλά και ως συνοδευτικό υλικό, χρησιμοποιήθηκαν επιγραφικά μνημεία, γραφικές παραστάσεις, ανάγλυφα, αγγειογραφίες, νομίσματα, δακτυλιόλιθοι και λοιπά γραπτά μνημεία του χαλκού, του μαρμάρου και του λίθου.Η μυθολογία με σιγουριά δεν είναι θρησκεία. Ποιος άνθρωπος της αρχαιότητας ακολουθούσε το παράδειγμα και την διαγωγή ενός θεού; Οι μύθοι είναι καθαρά ακούσια προϊόντα της φαντασίας και σε καμία περίπτωση δεν εξετάζονται από ηθικής απόψεως. Πολλές φορές οι αρχαίοι Έλληνες ικέτευσαν τον ουράνιο πατέρα Δία, να γίνει τιμωρός και εκδικητής ενός εγκλήματος, μα καμία φορά δεν τον επικαλέστηκαν για να αποδώσουν δίκιο σε έναν μοιχό…

Survivre by Henri Saigre Book Resume:

La question de l'Origine et celle de l'Identité sont particulièrement présentes de nos jours. Nous savons tout le parti que Freud a su tirer, à travers "le complexe d'OEdipe", de l'exploitation d'un fragment du mythe d'OEdipe. Dans cet ouvrage l'auteur se demande quels bénéfices l'art-thérapie, et plus particulièrement l'art transformationnel, peuvent espérer d'un questionnement et d'une mise en jeu de l'entièreté du mythe.

The Myth of William Wallace by Susan Wallner Book Resume:

This book examines literary examples concerning William Wallace against the background of various historical sources and evaluates the construction, the changes, and the relevance of this Scottish national myth.For over 700 years, William Wallace has been fascinating people. What he achieved for his country is almost unbelievable. Already during his lifetime, Wallace's reputation must have been legendary. Over the centuries, a powerful myth has been created around his person, which was fostered by diverse writers, and even by Hollywood. There have been several periods throughout Scottish history when the interest in William Wallace intensified enormously, resulting in an increase of literary publications on the freedom fighter. These climaxes appeared whenever the Scots were dissatisfied with the English rule and brought the old animosity between England and Scotland to new life. These tensions caused many writers to revive memories of Wallace and his ideals by projecting the medieval story into their own time. Thus, more and more bits and pieces were added to the myth whose message seems to have had tremendous effects on the Scots. Wallace's unfulfilled quest of freeing Scotland even became an issue in several programs of political parties.With the release of the film "Braveheart" in the mid-1990s, the Wallace cult was reborn once more. Was it the prevailing political situation that stimulated such an overwhelming enthusiasm for William Wallace again? Did the Wallace myth influence the Devolution Movement? Is Wallace's spirit still alive today? Do the Scots still cherish what he fought for, and will they finally achieve his goal of a fully independent Scottish Nation? With regard to the current political situation, the author finds interesting answers to these questions and discusses the chances for a possible Scottish independence.

The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf Book Resume:

The bestselling classic that redefined our view od the relationship between beauty and female identity. In today's world, women have more power, legal recognition, and professional success than ever before. Alongside the evident progress of the women's movement, however, writer and journalist Naomi Wolf is troubled by a different kind of social control, which, she argues, may prove just as restrictive as the traditional image of homemaker and wife. It's the beauty myth, an obsession with physical perfection that traps the modern woman in an endless spiral of hope, self-consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of "the flawless beauty."

Ταξιδεύοντας στη Μεσόγειο με τον Όμηρο by John Freely Book Resume:

Ακολουθήστε τα βήµατα του Οδυσσέα σε ένα µοναδικό ταξίδι στη Μεσόγειο µε οδηγό τον John Freely, έναν από τους σηµαντικότερους σύγχρονους συγγραφείς περιηγητικών βιβλίων. Από τα παράλια της Μικράς Ασίας ως τη Σικελία, διαµέσου της Κρήτης, της Κέρκυρας, της Ιθάκης και όχι µόνο, οι στίχοι της Ιλιάδας και της Οδύσσειας ζωντανεύουν σε ένα µοναδικό οδοιπορικό όπου ο µύθος ενώνεται µε την πραγµατικότητα. Μέσα από τις αναλύσεις των µελετητών, τις έρευνες των αρχαιολόγων αλλά και την προσωπική µατιά του µαγεµένου περιηγητή που έχει επισκεφθεί ο ίδιος κάθε ιστορική τοποθεσία, ο συγγραφέας ζωντανεύει τον κόσµο του ποιητή: διερευνά πού µπορεί να βρίσκονται µυθικοί τόποι, όπως η Χώρα των Λωτοφάγων ή το νησί της Κίρκης, καθώς και τα ιδιαίτερα χαρακτηριστικά του µεσογειακού τοπίου που τόσο ενέπνευσαν τον Όµηρο. Με βαθιά γνώση και πάθος, o Freely καταδεικνύει πώς τα οµηρικά έπη συνεχίζουν να ζουν ανά τους αιώνες µέσα από τη λογοτεχνία, την τέχνη, τον µύθο και τους θρύλους.

In Search of the Labyrinth by Nicoletta Momigliano Book Resume:

In Search of the Labyrinth explores the enduring cultural legacy of Minoan Crete by offering an overview of Minoan archaeology and modern responses to it in literature, the visual and performing arts, and other cultural practices. The focus is on the twentieth century, and on responses that involve a clear engagement with the material culture of Minoan Crete, not just with mythological narratives in Classical sources, as illustrated by the works of novelists, poets, avant-garde artists, couturiers, musicians, philosophers, architects, film directors, and even psychoanalysts – from Sigmund Freud and Marcel Proust to D.H. Lawrence, Cecil Day-Lewis, Oswald Spengler, Nikos Kazantzakis, Robert Graves, André Gide, Mary Renault, Christa Wolf, Don DeLillo, Rhea Galanaki, Léon Bakst, Marc Chagall, Mariano Fortuny, Robert Wise, Martin Heidegger, Karl Lagerfeld, and Harrison Birtwistle, among many others. The volume also explores the fascination with things Minoan in antiquity and in the present millennium: from Minoan-inspired motifs decorating pottery of the Greek Early Iron Age, to uses of the Minoans in twenty-first-century music, poetry, fashion, and other media.

Classical Mythology: A Very Short Introduction by Helen Morales Book Resume:

From Zeus and Europa, to Diana, Pan, and Prometheus, the myths of ancient Greece and Rome seem to exert a timeless power over us. But what do those myths represent, and why are they so enduringly fascinating? Why do they seem to be such a potent way of talking about our selves, our origins, and our desires? This imaginative and stimulating Very Short Introduction goes beyond a simple retelling of the stories to explore the rich history and diverse interpretations of classical myths. It is a wide-ranging account, examining how classical myths are used and understood in both high art and popular culture, taking the reader from the temples of Crete to skyscrapers in New York, and finding classical myths in a variety of unexpected places: from arabic poetry and Hollywood films, to psychoanalysis, the bible, and New Age spiritualism. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.

Why This World by Benjamin Moser Book Resume:

"That rare person who looked like Marlene Dietrich and wrote like Virginia Woolf," Clarice Lispector is one of the most popular but least understood of Latin American writers. Now, after years of research on three continents, drawing on previously unknown manuscripts and dozens of interviews, Benjamin Moser demonstrates how Lispector's development as a writer was directly connected to the story of her turbulent life. Born in the nightmarish landscape of post-World War I Ukraine, Clarice became, virtually from adolescence, a person whose beauty, genius, and eccentricity intrigued Brazil. Why This World tells how this precocious girl, through long exile abroad and difficult personal struggles, matured into a great writer. It also asserts, for the first time, the deep roots in the Jewish mystical tradition that make her the true heir to Kafka as well as the unlikely author of "perhaps the greatest spiritual autobiography of the twentieth century." From Chechelnik to Recife, from Naples and Berne to Washington and Rio de Janeiro, Why This World strips away the mythology surrounding this extraordinary figure and shows how Clarice Lispector transformed one woman's struggles into a universally resonant art.
