The Poetics of Myth
Eleazar Meletinsky considers myth the "prehistory" phase of literature. In "The Poetics of Myth, " he explores the mythological inheritance of specific images, myth as a form of oral literature, and the formulas and structure of myth as the basis for literature. Translated from the Russian, this version of his classic work has been edited to reinstate omissions due to political censorship.
