G. L. Huxley, Hermathena
"The study of the densely woven fabric that holds together Aegean and Near Eastern cultures since the Bronze Age continues to fascinate researchers and readers. This book is a welcome addition to recent studies, which are advancing this field by moving past the rather impressionistic and cataloguing approach that prevailed in previous decades ... Louden's nuanced and not unidirectional line of comparative work opens up new perspectives for Hellenists, as well as biblical and Near Eastern scholars ... it will be a useful reference for future research."
Carolina López-Ruiz, Classical World
"... this study will be welcomed by all who have an interest in the interaction of Greek and Near Eastern poetry, myth, and culture generally."
