Description

Exploring the hero's journey as a metaphor for spiritual evolution, this book offers a close, original reading of three seminal works of epic poetry: the Epic of Gilgamesh. Homer's Iliad, and Virgil's Aeneid. An excellent introduction to the central themes and historical development of the epic form. Somewhere I Have Never Travelled is also a compelling examination of the ways in which ancient literature can illuminate our modern lives.show more
