About the Author

David Leeming is Emeritus Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Connecticut. He is the author of numerous books on mythology, as well as an award-winning biography of James Baldwin.


"David Leeming peels layers from the myth and views his subject from a number of perspectives. The result is a complexity that affords us a far richer foundation upon which we can build our understanding of both the myth and ourselves."-- "New York Journal of Books"
