It's Claude Lévi-Strauss - but not as we knew him : The Bible and Literary Critics
The Bible Dudes
are back! This time they've turned their attention to Literary Criticism
, and the Camel and Donkey get stuck into Erich Auerbach (with a reprint of the "Odysseus' Scar" chapter) and Claude Lévi-Strauss joining the usual suspects...
It gives as good an introduction as you can expect from a mere smear 1000 words! Though I think it could do with a link to a good short simple example of biblical lit-crit, maybe a chapter of Robert Alter's, or one of David Clines' online articles?
Another small niggle, it does not quite ring true to me to have Lévi-Strauss (even in translation
) saying "Well, even before Hollywood was big, this dude named Vladimir Propp noticed the same thing with Russian fairy tales.
" I'd keep the surfer-talk for the surfer, camel speak for the camel, and academic for the academics!
