What a fantastic book. Paris takes the Greek gods and goddesses seriously by exploring their meanings. More importantly, she understands them in our contemporary setting and deals with how we enact these archetypes.

For example, we experience Artemis when we strive for purity, when we set aside family or relationships in order to pursue our individual goals -- career, say, or avoiding having children.

I found the book illuminating, brilliant, and insightful.

Salve Ártemis!

Mas quem quer que seja - homem ou mulher - que use os mitos para ditar comportamentos estereotipados aos outros, para restringir a realidade em vez de aprofundá-la, ou para forçar outra pessoa a manter-se dentro de determinado espaço, papel ou mito, que não seja natural para ela, procede exatamente ao contrário do pensamento mítico, que convida cada pessoa a reconhecer o mito que emerge mais naturalmente de seu próprio ser e destino

This is a thinking person's, non-gender-specific alternative to Jean Shinoda Bolen's Goddesses in Every Woman.

Top-notch! A source text I use to refresh my sense for archetypal patterns in soul-making.
