In early 1994 Marina Warner delivered the prestigious Reith Lectures for the BBC. In a series of six lectures, she takes areas of contemporary concern and relates them to stories from mythology and fairy tale which continue to grip the modern imagination. She analyses the fury about single mothers and the anxiety about masculinity in the light of ideals about male heroism and control; the current despair about children and the loss of childhood innocence; the changing attitude of myths about wild men and beasts and the undertow of racism which is expressed in myths about savages and cannibals. The last lecture, on home, brings the themes together to examine ideas about who we are and where we belong, with reference to the British nation and its way of telling its own history.

This slim volume is made up of essays Warner presented via a BBC radio show on themes often found in myth and fairy tale. Most interestingly, Warner also addresses current sociological problems at the same time. In her opening essay 'Monstrous Mothers' she addresses misogyny, the 'problem' of single mothers, and Medea's literary legacy. Unlike most of Warner's work, I found this volume highly readable: the fact that these are the verbatim essays as they were read on the air helps immeasurably, I think. ( )

"Kurzbeschreibung
Im Alltag unserer Kultur, in landl„ufigen Meinungen und ÷ffentlichen Diskussionen genauso wie in popul„ren Filmen, Videospielen oder g„ngigen Roman begegnen und benutzen wird Bruchstcke von Mythen und Legenden. šberzeugend demonstriert Marina Warner, da˜ in der Kritik an alleinerziehenden Mttern, im Erschrecken ber Untaten von Kindern, selbst im Einsatz fr die Rechte von Tieren und im Urteil ber das Verhalten von M„nnern mythische Bilder von Mostern, Unschuldsengeln, Helden und Kannibalen auftauchen. Sie k÷nnen Angst erzeugen, die aus der Blindheit und Grausamkeit entsteht. Vor diesen sozialen Folgen bewahrt uns nur ein kenntnisreicher und kritischer Umgang mit Mythen und Legenden."
