Saga: Best New Writings on Mythology

$19.95

“Edited by Jonathan Young

Common Era contains articles on a wide range of religious topics culled from such sources as Religious Studies News, Common Boundary, Tricycle, and New Age Journal. Authors such as Bill Moyers and Matthew Fox write thoughtfully about subjects ranging from global ethics to sexuality and women’s spirituality. James Gordon ‘s extremely interesting piece examines the tragic misunderstandings of Waco and the role of religious groups; Michael Sells explores compellingly the issue of religious genocide in Bosnia. This is a far-ranging collection with many provocative essays. By the same token, Saga includes writings by many of the leading authors on mythology, such as Robert Bly, Sam Keen, Marion Woodman, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and James Hillman. Their work has been culled from Parabola, Mythos Journal, and Noetic Science Review. In this volume the reader will find Toni Morrison’s Nobel lecture, an interview with Ursula LeGuin, Christina Downing’s analysis of Demeter and Persephone, and David Miller’s analysis of myth and religion. Both volumes are strongly recommended for collections on religion and myth.?Gail Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology Lib., Alfred
