George Santayana é autor de um dos livros de mitologia mais interessantes que eu já li

A Spanish-American who was educated at Boston Latin and Harvard, where he taught for a while, George Santayana (1863-1952) grew so alienated from New England culture that he resigned from Harvard in 1912 and spent the rest of his life in Europe. During his old age he lived in the Convent of the Blue Nuns in Rome, explaining that he was a Catholic atheist: “There is no God, and Mary is His Mother.” Wallace Stevens wrote a poem about him there, “To an Old Philosopher in Rome.”
