Summary "Are you ready to step inside? Labyrinths are as old as humanity, the proving grounds of heroes, the paths of pilgrims, symbols of spiritual rebirth, and pleasure gardens for pure entertainment. In Follow this thread, Henry Eliot leads us on a twisting journey through the world of mazes, real and imagined, drawing upon mythology, history, philosophy, psychology, pop culture, and more along the way. From Kafka to Kubrick, from the myth of the Minotaur to the quest to find the legendary Maze King, this ingenious book unravels our ancient, abiding relationship with mazes and labyrinths and explores why they continue to fascinate us today"--Page [4] of cover.
