Myth, Music and Ritual: Approaches to Comparative Literature

Divided into two parts, this volume includes contributions focused on both myth and some of its contemporary reflections (Part I) and the connection between myth, music and ritual (Part II). The fifteen contributions gathered here are authored by academics and researchers from Brazil, France, Poland, Mexico, South Africa and Romania. They focus on a variety of subjects, including folklore, literature, classical and traditional music, science-fiction, philosophy, and religion, among others.

The volume operates with an awareness of the capital role the study of the imaginary, with all its implications, is playing in the contemporary world.
