The Bible and Literature: a Personal View by Northrop Frye - Program 04 "Parody and Manifest Demonic: Trees and Water"

As well as the apocalyptic or paradisal images of the Tree of Life and the Water of Life, the Bible also contains the demonic images of the Tree of Death and the Water of Death. All images in the Bible are binary and form a picture of what is desirable or undesirable - heaven or hell - depending on the context in which they appear. Contains material from Lecture 4.
