Description: One of this century's leading literary critics, Northrop Frye has also been a major theorist of myth. This book compares his theories with those of Frazer, Jung, and others. It also discusses Frye's theory of story-types; his theory of culture, which gives literary criticism a central place in the study of mythology; his theory that most literature is displaced mythology; his view of romance as secular scripture; and his view that the Bible is a literary genetic code from which has shaped many subsequent works. The author also compares Frye's ideas with those of the philosophers Cassirer and Ricoeur and the metahistorians Spengler and Toynbee. Some 20 charts schematize Frye's thought, and there is a thorough bibliography of both primary and secondary works.
