Signs & Wonders: Essays on Literature & Culture
Chatto & Windus, 2003 - 516 Seiten
"Since the early 1970's, when Marina Warner reported from Vietnam and America, in startling essays like "The Crushed Butterflies of War", she has been one of the most challenging, subtle and profound commentators on the culture of past and present, unravelling our websof images, ideas and beliefs. This remarkable, resonant collection draws together essays written over twenty-five years, offering a wide-ranging retrospective of her changing ideas on literature and culture - on fiction, drama, religion, language and fairy tale. The different sections range from explorations of our taste for the miraculous, whether it be the Virgin Mary and angels, or voodoo and showers of toads, to our need for heroes and villians, from Joan of Arc to Myra Hindley."
