24 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It plunged headlong into the cultural space opened up by the poetry of Baudelaire and Mallarme and by the operas of Wagner. Symbolist painters sought not to represent appearances but to express "the idea", and the imaginary therefore plays an important part in their work.

"Michael Gibson's perceptive eye and limpid prose lead the viewer effortlessly through the story of Christ's passion as told in Peter Bruegel's Way to Calvary - an astonishing work, laced with allusions to the harsh political and religious climate King Philip II of Spain imposed on the artist's native land." "Having sketched out the historical background, Gibson goes on to argue the painting's relevance to the contemporary world. In doing so, he develops an innovative theory of image and myth."--Jacket

The Greeks and the irrational by E. R Dodds( Book )

13 editions published between 1965 and 2007 in French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this philosophy classic, which was first published in 1951, E.R. Dodds takes on the traditional view of Greek culture as a triumph of rationalism. Using the analytical tools of modern anthropology and psychology, Dodds asks, "Why should we attribute to the ancient Greeks an immunity from 'primitive' modes of thought which we do not find in any society open to our direct observation?" Praised by reviewers as "an event in modern Greek scholarship" and "a book which it would be difficult to over-praise," The Greeks and the Irrational was Volume 25 of the Sather Classical Lectures series."--GoogleBooks
