Barceló, Carlos F. (L)

Carlos F. Barceló has written a number of books on mythology. Inevitably he tackled Plato’s story in a work simply entitled Atlantis[154] . He confidently places Atlantis in the centre of the Atlantic Ocean.

The book purports to provide a general overview of the subject. However, it is a poorly written offering that contains a number of errors,  which might be the translator’s fault. For example Phyllis Young Forsyth was given a quick sex change and became Philip and then we have, a fictional character in Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth, transformed into a real person who believed that Iceland was the last remaining vestige of Atlantis.
