Reviews

"The strength of Larson's project lies in its meticulous presentation of detail, her careful survey of the literary and epigraphical sources, and her clear translations of Greek material probably unfamiliar to most readers." --Journal of the American Academy of Religion "...Jennifer Larson's Greek Nymphs: Myth, Cult, Lore is a first-of-its-kind, sweeping study that spans the archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods of Greek history. No stone is left unturned in this encyclopedic primer on the function of ubiquitous female deities known as nymphs and their cave-bound cults in the literature and landscape of ancient Greece. Larson's book is generously illustrated (with images of marble reliefs, coins, terra-cotta dolls, and caves) and accessible both to classicists and interested members of the public at large." --Signs "The strength of Larson's project lies in its meticulous presentation of detail, her careful survey of the literary and epigraphical sources, and her clear translations of Greek material probably unfamiliar to most readers." --Journal of the American Academy of Religion "...Jennifer Larson's Greek Nymphs: Myth, Cult, Lore is a first-of-its-kind, sweeping study that spans the archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods of Greek history.
