Om Good Dragons are Rare
Dragons are a universal phenomenon and have fascinated humans since the dawn of time. Yet whereas we have numerous studies into the origins of these fantastic creatures, there have been very few attempts at discussing their appearance, function and development within literary texts. The eighteen essays collected in this volume (8 in French, 6 in German and 4 in English) - written by an international cast of scholars - try to fill this gap by looking at dragons in literature East and West, contemporary and past.
