Not the easiest of reads but very rewarding for those who make it through. Must however have a thorough knowledge of the Bible and have read a good deal of other literature as well. I had a lot of deep insights reading sections of this book. Helpful for Christians too. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0156983656, Paperback)

Frye continues his exploration, begun in The Great Code, of the influence of Biblical themes and forms of expression on Western literature, with discussions of authors ranging from Chaucer and Shakespeare to Yeats and Eliot. Frye identifies four key elements found in the Bible-the mountain, the garden, the cave, and the furnace-and describes how they recur in later secular writings. Indices.
