This book gives a comprehensive overview of the phenomenon of artistic dialogue with ancient myths. The contributions assume a double-track research approach. The contributors investigate the procedure of myths' recycling within Greco-Roman antiquity, and they consider modern re-occupations of myths in dramatic literature and theatre. Providing various examples of myths' reception from antiquity to present days, this book confirms the persistent human need of re-mythization.
This volume is the result of the painstaking efforts of many people, including contributors, reviewers, editors as well as the organisers of the second edition of the international conference Reception of Ancient Myths in Ancient, Modern and Postmodern Culture that took place at the University of Lodz in Poland in November 2015. The conference was organised by the Laboratory of Reception of Greek Literature, which is a part of the Chair of Classical Philology, working in cooperation with the Chair of Romance Studies. Editors of the volume would like to warmly thank the reviewers (prof.
