The most profound books that I have ever read have left me speechless even stammering Such is the case with Roberto Calasso s The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony which I have put down no than fifteen minutes ago Here is a book about why myths exist and why Ancient Greece continues to have such a hold on the Western mind One of my strange little reading habits is for each year to choose a theme that will guide much of my reading for the year For 2010 I am delving into Ancient Greece reading works of archeology history philosophy and anything else pertaining to the world

    Zeus is never ridiculous Because his dignity is of no concern to him Non bene convemunt nee in una sede morantur Maiestas et amor says OvidAny sane reader would find this book ridiculous at least in parts but that doesn’t concern Calasso for his subject is Zeus and Zeus is never ridiculous The mythographer lives in a permanent state of chro

    I've read this book cover to cover 3 times since I bought it in 1993 It's the best book I've ever read on Greek mythologyActually it's of an extended and unfailingly brilliant meditation on Greek mythology rather than a summary or explanation Calasso is some kind of genius he's not only read everything he's thought about it flipped it backwards and forwards and tilted it sideways in his mind then filtered whatever he's talking a

    It has rarely happened to me even with those books I've read and have rated very high here at goodreads But here it did I feel resistance giving my copy of this book away Very unusual for me considering my habit of disposing of books

    I started this book when it was new I got it for Christmas in 1988 actually I received two of them I started it but I couldn't finish it uickly it's rather heavy but not in a bad way very 'pregnant' of different meanings allusions connections or at least I thought so at the time A few months afterward the author visited my high school he was supposed to speak about this same book Unfortunately not many of us students were present
