In reading it, I found that he stretched the myth sometimes to fit his purpose. Often, there were times when I would have interpreted it differently, and if he were trying to offer the definitive interpretation of the myth, I might object. However, that's not what he's trying to do. He uses the myth as a vehicle for his own understanding. In that way, he creates a new myth, one which is updated for our modern age. On the way, he also creates a vocabulary which, for myself, has helped to organize my thoughts. In particular, I found the concepts of "ashes," "copper," and "the garden," helpful.
In short, I'm ready glad I found this book, and I recommend it to anyone who thinks that masculinity is inherently harmful, outdated, or completely meaningless.
Thoughtful people with the capacity for poetic depth tend to 'get it.'
This book has something to offer everyone, if they keep and open mind. Men, especially, will benefit from it and women as well.
But please, keep your mind open: this is mythological poetry, let it move you and resonate with something that can't be describe by reason or words.
Live it and Love it.
