New Library Resource – the influence of Classical literature

“Brill’s New Pauly Supplements – The Reception of Myth and Mythology presents the impact and reception of major figures of classical Graeco-Roman mythology in comprehensive articles. The contributions to this volume do not deal with mere personifications or with historical figures, mythical locations or historical events. The Reception of Myth and Mythology goes beyond the usual listing of artists, works and dates, or the cataloguing of essentially extrinsic details of a mythographic and iconological nature. It aspires instead to investigate the history of the impact and reception of individual mythical figures from early antiquity to the present day, primarily within the three disciplines of literature, music and art.” Available through the university library databases in Brill Online.
