Myth and society in ancient Greece by Jean-Pierre Vernant ( Book )

"In this groundbreaking study, Vernant declinates a compelling new vision of ancient Greece. Myth and Society takes us far from the calm and familiar images of Polykleitos and the Parthenon, and revels to us a fundamentally other culture--one of slavery, of blood sacrifice, of perpetual and ritualized warfare, of ceremonial hunting and ecstasies."--Publisher's description

The universe, the gods, and men : ancient Greek myths by Jean-Pierre Vernant ( Book )
3 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this enchanting retelling of Greek myth, Jean-Pierre Vernant combines his deep knowledge of the subject with an original storytelling style. Beginning with the creation of Earth out of Chaos, Vernant continues with the castration of Uranus, the war between the Titans and the Olympic gods, the wily ruses of Prometheus and Zeus, and the creation of Pandora, the first woman. His narrative takes readers from the Trojan War to the voyage of Odysseus, from the story of Dionysus to the terrible destiny of Oedipus to Perseus's confrontation with the Gorgons." "Jean-Pierre Vernant has devoted himself to the study of Greek mythology. In recounting these tales, he unravels for us their multiple meanings and brings to life the beloved figures of legend whose narratives lie at the origin of our civilization. With remarkable psychological acuity, Vernant presents a picture of the world as the Greeks understood it. The relationship between the human and the divine - realms that have always been intimately connected - and their place within a world of potent natural forces are evoked effortlessly in a narrative that retains the magical quality of myth and reads with the compelling momentum of a good novel."--BOOK JACKET

Ancestor of the West : writing, reasoning, and religion in Mesopotamia, Elam, and Greece by Jean Bottéro ( Book )
23 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in French and English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this introduction to the ancient world, three leading French historians explore the emergence of rationality and writing: how it developed and how it is remarkably similar to our own tradition. We learn that the supposed twin pillars of Western civilization, Greece and the Bible, were hardly freestanding: they elaborated logical and religious structures that had developed much earlier in Mesopotamia. At the same time Ancestor of the West reminds us that these cultures were precursors of our own precisely because they possessed an intelligence that we still recognize. The ancients, even in their earliest writings, thought like us."--BOOK JACKET

Spécialiste de la mythologie grecque, l'auteur évoque les origines de l'univers, la guerre des dieux et les liens que l'humanité n'a cessé d'entretenir avec le divin. Il nous fait entendre ces vieux mythes toujours vivants et nous permet d'en déchiffrer mieux le sens souvent multiple. C'est à cette rencontre entre le savant et le conteur que ce livre doit son originalité
La mort dans les yeux : figures de l'autre en Grèce ancienne by Jean-Pierre Vernant ( Book )
29 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in French and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pourquoi le masque de la Gorgone doit-il pétrifier celui qui le regarde ? Et pourquoi son expression grotesque et terrible porte-t-elle la mort dans les yeux ? Dans la Grèce antique, certaines puissances divines - Gorgô, mais aussi Artémis et Dionysos - expriment ainsi l'angoisse qui naît des inquiétantes étrangetés dont s'accompagnent les passages de la civilisation à la sauvagerie, de l'enfance à l'état adulte, de la vie à la mort. C'est dans cet effroi que se pose, pour toute une culture, la question de l'Autre et de ses métamorphoses
