THE GREAT DIONYSIAK MYTH.

'A work of singular research and of bold and original thought.'—Standard.

'A mine of careful thought and valuable instruction.'—The Bev. Sir G. W. Cox, M.A., Author of 'Mythology of the Aryan Nations.'

'I hailed your title with delight, which was in no way diminished by my perusal of the opening portions of the work.'—The Bight Hon. W. E. Gladstonb, M.P.

'Mr. Brown's first volume is an addition to religious mythology. The author treats the question by "a scientific consideration of the historic course of religious thought." There is something fascinating iu this first part, which leaves thinking readers impatient to possess the sequel.'—Notes And Queries.

'This book is characterised by unsparing labour and research, the results of which are stated very clearly, and with the sensibleness that comes of taking a broad view of things. The quantity of material brought together to prove the main argument, that Dionysos was not a deity of Aryan but of Semitic origin, is unparalleled.

Academy.

'To the task of exploring this field Mr. Brown has brought a steady resolution and a judicial impartiality which deserve all praise. The admission that Semitic thought and worship exercised some influence on those of the Greeks justifies the attempt to determine, if we can, the character of this influence; there Mr. Brown has done excellent service. . . . We think that he has fairly proved his main points, that the idea and worship of Dionysus are non-Hellenic and Semitic. In the working out of this subject he has brought together a vast body of most interesting and important matter, and handled it with great skill. Mr. Brown has fully established his title to our gratitude for a vast amount of solid work already done.'

Saturday Bevtew.

'Mr. Brown has, it must be conceded, fully established his main point. . . . We admit gladly that he has done enough to win for himself a wide and permanent reputation.'—Saturday Eeview (on vol. ii.).

'Le nom de M. Bobebt Brown, auteur du "Grand Mythe Dionysiaque," est bien connu des mythologues, qui n'ont point oublie ses travaux sur le dieu Poseidon. M. Robert Brown s'est donne pour tache de determiner la part qui revient a l'influence semitique dans la mythologie grecque, et il a trouve que cette part etait considerable. II surprend des traces d'un element oriental bien caracterise dans les rites, dans les idees, et dans les mots. Son livre sur le dieu des mers avait pour but de demontrer que ni le nom ni la conception de Poseidon n'avait une origine hellenique. L'ouvrage qu'il consacre a Dionysos est traite de meme dans un esprit d'opposition aux mythologues qui rattachent etroitement le pantheon grec au pantheon vedique. ... La "Grand Mythe Dionysiaque" est un ouvrage solide autant qu'interessant.'

Bibliotheque Untverselle Et Revue Suisse.

'The title hardly suggests to an ordinary person the vast amount of ground which the author covers. The Dionysiak Myth, in his view, is nothing less than a picture of all the most important aspects of human life; and mankind, in composing it, may be said, in his words, to have been "revealing their own nature and mental basis." Mr. Brown has produced two learned volumes, in which the whole matter and many collateral matters are elaborately discussed.'—Spectator.
