University Of Missouri Press, Columbia, MO, 1973, First Edition, First Printing. In a wide ranging examination of the hero in the Western literary tradition, Murray argues that contemporary writers have lost a sense of the need for creative flexibility in the face of tragedy and adversity, which defines the essence of the true hero; originally presented as a series of three public lectures at the University of Missouri, Columbia in Oct 1972, and the ninth in the Paul Anthony Brick Lecture Series. Near fine in grey buckram, with bright printed titles to spine; the dust jacket is unclipped, touch of wear to spine ends, light strip to top edge of front panel, which presumably occurred in the printing process, else about near fine, in mylar sleeve.
