it was amazing
bookshelves: myth, psychology

a dense thicket of myth in all of its core components. graves is the writer's critic's writer, leaping wildly from one subject to another, spinning threads and running out across them. he focuses a great deal on the Welsh Ogham and its correlations with Greek and Jewish traditions. although historically flawed, the book itself it still thrilling to parse - and tremendously inspirational when you consider the nature of culture, the foundations of all stories, and their further path. i will very likely read this again.
