Summary (From the publisher):

In Ixion in Heaven, Disraeli is following in a venerable tradition, that goes back at least to Ovid, of exploiting the comic possibilities of widely recognized myths. While staying quite within the general outline of the original -- Ixion's killing of his father-in-law, his being befriended by Jove, his attempt to seduce Juno, and his being punished on the wheel -- Disraeli adds the particular detail that gives the story its tone of urbane humor.
