About this product
- DescriptionExplores Greek conceptions of human innerness and the way in which Greek tragedy shaped European notions of mind and self. Arguing that Greek poetic language connects images of consciousness, with the darkness attributed to Hades and to women, this title analyzes tragedy's biological and daemonological metaphors for what is within.
