Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Numerous contributors present essays on artists' uses and interpretations of some 120 narratives and themes from mythology, religion, and literature in various time periods, cultures, and art forms. Covering such concepts as abandonment, communion, marginality, misfortune, and sacrifice, the essays focus not on personages, but on their actions, the situations in which they find themselves, and the concepts they represent. The authors discuss these themes in terms of their incorporation in major iconographic narratives, their use by less well- known artists, their historical background, and their representation in allegories, gestures, costumes, composition, and other forms of visual expression. The editor includes indexes of ancient, classical, and Judeo- Christian persons, places, and concepts; references to the Bible and other sacred books; artists and works of art; authors and composers; literary texts; and other topics.
