BARBARA SEWARD

Symbolic Rose THE SYMBOLIC ROSE

Paperback original, $21.50 USD
233 pages
ISBN: 978-0-88214-341-5

SUBJECT: Symbolism

Barbara Seward reads western literary history through what is perhaps its most enduring – and most endearing – symbol. The rose is secular and divine love; Apuleius’s ass and the Virgin Mary; beauty, youth, joy, and sorrow at the world's transience.
