The Secular Scripture: A Study of the Structure of Romance

by

Frye finds in romantic narratives of Western tradition an imaginative universe stretching from an idyllic world to a demonic one, and a pattern of cyclical descent into and ascent out of the demonic realm. Romance thus forms an integrated vision of the world, a "secular scripture" whose hero is man, paralleling sacred scripture whose hero is God.
