This is a book well worth perusing. I had read the "Great Code", which was seminal for me in understanindg a grnd view of scripture through Frye's analysis. This is a n earlier book, and points to that great achievement. I am impressed by he mythic basis of much literature and intrigued by the use of charms and riddles.
