"Fascinating. ... A history of the Devil taken seriously, in theology, folklore, art, literature."--Village Voice"There is probably no one alive who knows more about the lore of the Devil than Jeffrey Burton Russell. ... He supplies colourful accounts of the pictures medieval folklore formed of the Evil One, and discerning sketches of the insights of poets like Dante and Milton, and novelists from Dostoevsky to Flnnery O'Conner. ... A first-rate survey. ... Close-packed as it inevitably is, it reads easily, and each of its chapters is full of accurate and skilfully arranged information."--Times Literary Supplement"[Russell] recreates the arcane images of good and evil we all once understood perfectly well as children. From the moment the cover is lifted on this beautifully produced book, the world darkens. Russell presents story after story, using them like a descending staircase, drawing us down into archetypal memories of unending battles with the Evil One."--Bloomsbury Review
