Summary
  • "The Empty Men describes the process by which adventure stories - replete with foolish love, warfare, assassinations, ritual slaughter, and grim masculine codes - were transformed into sermons and history lessons
  • Mobley also offers reflections on the Iron Age theology of these narratives, with their emphasis on poetic justice, and on the mythic dimensions of landscape in these stories."--BOOK JACKET
