Product Description

A world renowned critic and scholar examines the continuing cultural importance of the Bible as the single most important influcence in the imaginative tradition of Western art and literature. Frye rejects both dogmatic and literal interpre tations while celebrating the uniqueness of the bible as distinct from all other epics and sacred texts. His highly original analysis shows the bible as redeeming history with a visionary poetic perspective that complements science in the understanding of man's nature.
