It's this premise that both drives Eliade's exhaustive exploration of the sacred--as it has manifested in space, time, nature and the cosmos, and life itself--and buttresses his expansive view of the human experience.Hide synopsis

Index.
A somewhat difficult read for one not particularly well versed in the world of art. I had frankly expected more of an discussion of paleolithic act, based upon her previous writings. Having said that, the depth of knowledge was impressive. Her analysis of music and dance were particularly insightful. While the book sorta assumes a working knowledge of the art world, which I lack, these led me into a number of new and quite interesting areas.
