The Great Code: The Bible and Literature

by

The Great Code: The Bible and Literature Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An examination of the influence of the Bible on Western art and literature and on the Western creative imagination in general. Frye persuasively presents the Bible as a unique text distinct from all other epics and sacred writings. “No one has set forth so clearly, so subtly, or with such cogent energy as Frye the literary aspect of our biblical heritage” (New York Times Book Review). Indices.

Review:

"Northrop Frye is one of our most distinguished literary critics, and in The Great Code he has found, as he did in his study of Blake and in the Anatomy of Criticism, a subject that calls forth his learning, knowledge, and humanity. This study of the Bible as a unified structure of narrative and imagery has valuable contributions to make about the nature of imagination as well as about language, myth, metaphor, and typology, the four subjects pursued in the study. Frye addresses himself to 'readers
of good will,' and these will find his writing witty, informative, and accessible." Reviewed by Andrew Witmer, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
