The Dictionary of Indo-European Poetic and Religious Themes is a comprehensive study in Indo-European phraseology and poetics. It not only reflects the state of the art in this important field of comparative studies but also includes new discoveries made by Didier Calin based in particular on data from Anatolian languages and Latvian folksongs, the dainas. Extensive indexes allow for quick access to text occurences and their translations. The book is designed not only for comparatists and indo-europeanists but also for classicists and for specialists of the various branches of the Indo-European language family interested in the history of Indo-European cultures.
