Description

Description: This is a new interdisciplinary treatise on the unusual features of literary and cultural items connected with the ancient idea of "translation" including the motif of ascension as a phenomenon complete with its own premises, literary and narratological conceits, but one that has been understudied as an influence on Western culture, religion and its literary production.
