About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1933, this book contains the text of the Gray Lectures delivered in 1932 on the influence of Indo-European legend on Greek myth. Halliday discusses the diffusion of key mythological tropes as well as specific Greek myths, such as Procne and Philomela. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the transmission of folk history and legend.
