About this book

Language: French

Petite Flore Mythologique reminds us that many plants have played an important role in ancient myths. Flowers, trees and shrubs gathered herefrom Yarrow to Violierare distinguished by their remarkable mythical origin or religious implications. For each plant the book reports myths in which they appear and the legendary or actual properties attributed to them in antiquity. A small, richly illustrated dictionary at the intersection of botany and mythology.

Summary in French:
Quel tour la grenade a-t-elle joué à Perséphone ? Quelle était la fleur préférée d’Aphrodite ? Comment le céleri est-il devenu à la fois symbole de deuil et de victoire ?

La Petite Flore mythologique nous rappelle que bien des végétaux ont joué un rôle important dans les mythes antiques. Les fleurs, arbres et arbustes ici rassemblés – d’Achillée à Violier – se distinguent par leur origine mythique remarquable ou leurs implications religieuses. Pour chacune des plantes sont rapportés les mythes dans lesquels elle apparaît ainsi que les propriétés légendaires ou réelles qui leur étaient attribuées dans l’Antiquité.

Un petit dictionnaire richement illustré, au croisement de la botanique et de la mythologie.
