Editorial Reviews

Review

Her prose is lush and exstravagant, sometimes frankly erotic, but always thoughtful and thought-provoking, always fresh and surprising. -- Los Angeles Times

Format: Paperback
This book strikes a welcome balance between Neo-Pagan fluff (no, it's not ALL fluff, but you know what I mean) and unreadable scholarly tomes (no, they're not ALL unreadable, but you know what I mean). Ms. Paris' psychological insights into these myths are incredibly compelling. Are the gods "real?" Who knows, and does it matter? Their effect on us -- as archetypes and symbols -- is deeply significant in either case, whether you're a modern maenad or an interested agnostic (or both). Ginette Paris' book addresses that significance in ways which are entirely relevant and applicable to modern life, guiding the reader on the path of pagan grace.

Ginette Paris gives a good interpretation and almost a revelation of how Dionysos, Hermes and Mnemosyne can be undestanded and feeled in common life. A very profound and inspired view that modern pagans should read.

There were only snippets of this book I found helpful. Otherwise, it really seemed like a trip through someone's rambling consciousness, where the author pieced together concepts and ideas that had little to do with the gods. It was, in fact, a little like reading the correspondence of a particularly verbose and nutty aunt.
