In this extensively illustrated volume, Campbell explores the feminine divine. He traces its blossoming from one Great Goddess to the many goddesses of the mythic imagination by weaving together Marija Gimbutas’ studies of Neolithic Old Europe, the Greek Eleusinian Mystery cult, Arthurian legends of the Middle Ages, and the Neoplatonic Renaissance. In the course of his exploration, Campbell provides new insight into classical motifs such as the reappearance of the Goddess in Homer’s Odyssey—in the guise of Circe, Calypso, Nausicaa, and Penelope. Editor Safron Rossi, Ph.D., director of the OPUS Archive and Research Center at Pacifica Graduate Institute, which houses Campbell’s Archive and Library, considers his scholarship in the context of contemporary goddess and myth studies and draws upon his numerous talks and papers to demonstrate how his realizations display a complex and deep sensitivity to feminine divine figures as symbolizing the archetypal energies of transformation, initiation, and inspiration.
