Reading Now: The Golden Bough
April 2, 2011 § Leave a comment
The Golden Bough by James Frazer has found its way to me from the library, and I have finally started reading it. A little late though, since I have to return it in three weeks. With so little time to finish 800 pages written in small print, perhaps I’ll have a look at these chapters first:
- The Worship of Trees. Section 1. Tree-spirits.
- The Worship of Trees. Section 2. Beneficent Powers of Tree-Spirits.
- Relics of Tree Worship in Modern Europe.
- The Worship of the Oak.
