Book Description

Jane Ellen Harrison (1850-1928) was a pioneer in the academic study of myth. Using the then emerging disciplines of anthropology and ethnology, she demonstrates in this book (from 1903) that the mythological tales of the Greeks embody systems of belief which are widespread among societies both 'primitive' and 'advanced'.

Don't be fooled by the Look Inside feature--it leads you to a completely different edition, which is a photocopy. The General Books version was created by robot OCR, and very bad OCR, and OCR cannot handle quotations in Greek, Latin, etc., which this book is full of, making it utterly unintelligible. I am disappointed in both General Books for allowing this version to exist at all, and to for their very misleading link.

HASH(0x9fb60c18) out of 5 stars printing hard to read. April 7 2015
By zhiyi - Published on
Verified Purchase
it is actually a photocopy of a 100 year old edition. The printing is hard to read because its extreme blacking and whiting. Many letters need to guess.
From amazon book preview, the Princeton edition ISBN 0691015147 seems to have much better quality, but also more expensive

HASH(0x9fb64ef4) out of 5 stars Do not buy this book--all the Greek terms are replaced ... March 23 2015
By Gary Jones - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Do not buy this book--all the Greek terms are replaced by gibberish. I had hoped to save money and time, but I lost both, and have contempt for whoever at amazon is responsible for this being on sale.
