An examination of the occidental mind in poetry and literature; the essays themselves are poems and fables, having nothing in common with modern criticism. The myths and names of this volume, all ancient -- Deukalion, Theophrastus, Hesiod, Isaiah, Pindar, and Bellerophon -- are employed solely to understand the present enigmas of the heart and the head."
