Texte du rabat

Myth is found in every culture, and various theories as to their sources have been proposed, ranging from truthful or exaggerated accounts of historical events to the personification of nature. Within this volume, Edward Clodd explores the origins and development of myth from all over the world and its relationship with religion. Contents include: "Man's First Questions", "Myths", "Myths about Sun and Moon", "Myths about Eclipses", "Myths about Stars", "Myths about the Earth and Man", "Man's Ideas about the Soul", "Belief in Magic and Witchcraft", "Man's Awe in the Unknown", "Fetish-Worship", etc. Edward Clodd (1840 - 1930) was an English writer, banker, and anthropologist famous for his various and notable literary and scientific friends, including the likes of Edward Fitzgerald, Samuel Butler, Andrew Lang, and others. Other notable works by author include: "The Childhood of the World" (1872), "Jesus of Nazareth" (1880), and "Nature Studies" (1882). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
