Review:

[This book] is a work of art which, in richness of subject matter and ideas, as well as in its craft of language and imagery, might be considered worthy of Daidalos himself.... [T]his is a marvelous, thought-provoking book ... packed with epigrammatic sentences and memorable one-liners.---Susan Sherratt, Antiquity

Morris's impressive control of ancient evidence and modern bibliography on archaeology, history, literature, and mythology enables her to produce a persuasive synthesis.... [T]his is a book to be reckoned with by historians as well as art historians and philologists.---Peter Krentz, History

One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 1993

Winner of the 1993 James R. Wiseman Book Award, Archaeological Institute of America

No brief review can do justice to the originality and breadth of this major work of revisionist scholarship. . . . Gathering an imposing array of linguistic, literary, archaeological, and historical sources from around the Mediterranean, the author has demonstrated the profound, appreciative dependence of the Greeks on the Levantine 'East', beginning in the Late Bronze Age.--Choice

Morris, using art and literature, myth and iconography, etymology and textual analysis, builds an enviably comprehensive thesis.... Morris' book establishes itself as a leader in the field.--Greece and Rome

From the Back Cover:

In a major revisionary approach to ancient Greek culture, Sarah Morris invokes as a paradigm the myths surrounding Daidalos to describe the profound influence of the Near East on Greece's artistic and literary origins. Her broad focus on the Mediterranean world combined with her interdisciplinary approach allows for new insights into a wide range of topics, including the meaning of myth, sculpture, the evolution of the alphabet, Homeric poetics, and Attic drama.
