A study of one of the most distinctive and unusually varied motifs from classical mythology. The author first describes several basic conceptions of the nature of Pan the goat-god and examines the exploitation of these images from classical through eighteenth-century literature. The main part of her study is a fuller analysis of literary manifestations of the god in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: the Orphic Pan of the Romantics, the Plutarchan Pan of the Victorians, appearances of the benevolent and the sinister goat-god, and D. H. Lawrence’s use of the motif.
