Summary
This compelling account gathers together themes and stories from every part of the globe to show how myths share many common patterns, and how through them the human imagination is expressed in all its diversity. A treasury of images drawn from all cultures--both iconic and little known-- helps explain what is important about these myths, their symbols, and the stories they tell
