Idealistic Studies 17 (1):89-90 (1987)

Abstract
This brilliant study, original in certain ways, supersedes everything that has been written in recent years on Plato’s philosophy of poetry and myth in particular. Elias’s familiarity with the literature is as impressive as is his penetrating analysis of the diverse positions taken by friend or foe on Plato’s theory of poetry. In the course of the discussion Elias answers two basic questions: Do the myths form a coherent whole despite their variety, and how is this variety to be understood especially when placed in correspondence to the variety of philosophical problems Plato raises?
