    While being an overall interesting and thought provoking read, I found this book to be extremely difficult, perhaps the most difficult book I have read I recommend if you decide to take this one on that you have a dictionary, a lot of knowledge of Greek Mythology, or perhaps a Greek Mythology encyclopaedia but only if you have some knowledge of Greek mythology and if you are willing to look it up The most useful chapters of this book are the first and final 2 chapters, while the in between is While being an overall interesting and thought provoking read, I found this book to be extremely difficult, perhaps the most difficult book I have read I recommend if you decide to take this one on that you have a dictionary, a lot of knowledge of Greek Mythology, or perhaps a Greek Mythology encyclopaedia but only if you have some knowledge of Greek mythology and if you are willing to look it up The most useful chapters of this book are the first and final 2 chapters, while the in between is filled with allusions to Greek Mythology, and perhaps a couple of detours Overall I do not find this book exceptionally well written in regards to the many many allusions to the Greek mythology and somewhat esoteric terms However, the conclusion, Greeks did believe in their myths but not the belief that people today have for religion or such beliefs, I found to be intrig...

    What a fascinating question you think to yourself It s a slim book, so I was expecting a delightful set of maybe somewhat loose reflections on the nature of belief and the uses of myth history, bolstered by some close readings of a variety of sources But no Instead, you get a rambling monologue supported with no evidence whatsoever It s the kind of work that people call suggestive and describe as brilliant even though it has no discernible argument It drives me nuts That said, it does, What a fascinating question you think to yourself It s a slim book, so I was expecting a delightful set of maybe somewhat loose reflections on the nature of belief and the uses of myt...

    A difficult book that I have re readthan once, hoping to mineof Veyne s meaning I ultimately find this one frustrating The problem doesn t appear to be in the translation from the French, but rather in Veyne s approach to his ideas.
