The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony [9780241399200]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'It will be read and re-read not as a treatise but as a story: one of the most extraordinary that has ever been written of the origins of Western self-consciousness' Simon Schama

The marriage of Cadmus and Harmony was the last time the gods of Olympus feasted alongside mortals. What happened in the distant ages preceding it, and in the generations that followed, form the timeless tales of ancient Greek mythology. In this masterful retelling of the myths we think we know, Roberto Calasso illuminates the deepest questions of our existence.

'The kind of book one comes across only once or twice in one's lifetime' Joseph Brodsky

'A perfect work like no other' Gore Vidal


AUTHOR: Roberto Calasso is the author of many books including the international bestseller The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony and The Ruin of Kasch, both parts of a work in progress of which The Unnamable Present is part nine.
