The Celestial Hunter by the Italian author Roberto Calasso was originally published in 2016 by the publisher Adelphi as Il Celcciatore Celeste. The book is now available to English readers thanks to a fine translation by Richard Dixon. Those who know Calasso's essayistic prose are not surprised by his Protév style and way of thinking or by the theme. Those who do not yet know his writings will be able to enjoy his fresh approach to ancient subjects and various associations.
The book is a collection of mythologies. Calasso is the 21st century. . .
