Word and Action
Essays on the Ancient Theater

Published August 1, 1986 by The Johns Hopkins University Press .
Written in English.

First Sentence

Any title which includes the word "myth" is almost certain, these days, to raise expectations, entertained by some with enthusiasm and by others with dismay, that the writer will deal in wide, if not universal, terms of reference-the complexes, displacements, and sublimations of Sigmund Freud; the somewhat arbitrary archetypes of Jung; the Indo-European tripartite functions of Dumezil; or the codes, contradictions, and mediations of Claude Levi-Strauss-and also that the article will come equipped with at least one complicated diagram.
