Description

Northrop Frye's expansive and influential lectures on the literary symbolism of the Bible given during 1981-2 are arguably among his best and most accessible works. This 13th volume in the "Collected Works of Northrop Frye" gathers together these lectures and Frye's notebooks on the Bible, Dante, and Eastern religion. The 11 holograph notebooks and the 24 lectures transcribed here present new insights into Frye's personality, methods and thought The notebook material comes mostly from the 1970s, when Frye was at work on the first of his books on the Bible, "The Great Code", but also includes one notebook from the 1940s, another from the 1960s, devoted to Frye's reading of Dante's "Purgatorio" and the first ten cantos of the "Paradiso", and another from the 1980s, when Frye was at work on his second book on the Bible, "Words with Power". Fully annotated, this volume in the "Collected Works of Northrop Frye" should be an invaluable addition to any literary or religious scholar's library.
