Our culture proclaims its respect for scientific reason, yet we seem no less bedazzled and bedevilled by myth than our remote ancestors. Now, sixty years after Roland Barthes first explored the mythological underpinnings of 1950s consumerism in his seminal Mythologies, the pre-eminent cultural critic Peter Conrad takes up the challenge of tracing myths into the 21st century. From the Queen to Caitlyn Jenner, from Tyrannosaurus Rex to Donald Trump, Conrad's exhilarating book surveys the age-old wisdom behind the absurdities of popular culture in his formidably astute but always entertaining style.Author: Peter Conrad
