On a windy afternoon in early spring Rory MacLean fell to earth in Anissari, a village surrounded by white mountains in an ancient corner of Crete. MacLean's mother had died only a few months earlier and he had been engulfed by grief. But an old desire had also taken hold to build and fly an aeroplane. And so he set off to the land where Daedalus and Icarus had made their maiden flight and settled in to days of eating lamb and drinking wine with his Cretan neighbours and, with their help, attempting to build a Woodhopper from scratch and make it fly.

Kilinski (art history, Southern Methodist U., Dallas, Texas), whose writing is characterized by inordinately long paragraphs that cry for editing, offers a lengthy survey of the iconography of the story of Icarus. The volume begins with a discussion of the literary sources, then turns to the occurrence of the myth in classical, medieval, Renaissance, and contemporary art. Each image cited is described at length using formal analysis. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
