“This is Mary Daly’s masterpiece. In Western tradition, her only near-equal is the poet William Blake. Daly is a philosopher/artist of great strength and grace.”—Andrea Dworkin on Quintessence…Realizing the Archaic Future
“Alive with creative energy, impelled by an urgency of vision . . . Philosopher, theologian, mythologist, explorer, pirate, warrior, witch, fairy, or leprechaun, Daly draws her readers into her outrageously lived life.”—Mary Jo Weaver, The New York Times Book Review, on Outercourse
“Rich in ideas, imagery, and Daly’s characteristic wordplay, Pure Lust not only explores and analyzes the patriarchy’s abuse of lust . . . but [affirms] feminist ‘life-lust’ and vision. This is a witty, original work—and one which is A-mazing Elemental Daly.”—Robin Morgan, Ms.
“Mary Daly has shocked and angered us to a new edge of feminism.”—Valerie Miner, San Francisco Chronicle, on Gyn/Ecology
“Not for the timid, this brilliant book calls for nothing short of the overthrow of patriarchy itself.”—Alix Kates Shulman, The Village Voice, on Beyond God the Father
“A hard-hitting, highly original, and even revolutionary little book unmasking the latent anti-feminism in so much Catholic thinking and practice . . .”—Thomas Merton on The Church and the Second Sex
