Reviews - What do customers think about Christ and Apollo: The Dimensions of the Literary Imagination?
A classic examination of the works of Greek dramatists Dec 5, 2004
Originally published in 1960, Christ and Apollo: The Dimensions of Literary Imagination is a classic examination of the works of Greek dramatists, Dante, Shakespeare, Proust, Camus, Graham Greene, and other great writers in light of their gravitation toward two opposing tendencies. One aspect, symbolized by Apollo, is the tendency to desire escape from the finite real world and the human condition of embodiment. The other tendency is symbolized by Christ, and offers a glimpse of the infinite world. Christ and Apollo evaluates these traits with articulate philosophical reasoning, and educated author and literary critic William F. Lynch explains why he feels limitation and finitude is the great human good. An erudite and deeply thought out compendium, intended especially for advanced literature and philosophy students.
