    Keep in mind this book was originally published in 1981 Even so, those with sensitivity to a certain outsider perspective which could of course seem assumptive and dismissive of survivor experience to rape may understandably wish to steer clear The interpretation of mythic rape and sexuality in this book are discordant, perhaps even in war with, our contemporary understanding These aspects are also fused with Freudian interpretation of personal dreams and Jungian depth psychology This perspective is integral to the book, but lays subjective perspective on the table in plain sight I can see and feel in her judgment of Artemis that she is Aphrodite After all, I am Artemis.The rest, and grand majority, of this text is a lively and fascinating feminist rediscovery of the archetypal Greek goddesses based on overlooked textual evidence The first ch...

    I read this book after The Goddesses in Everywoman by Jean Shinoda Bolen, and I was impressed by this book as much and in some ways even .The two books are very similar since they re both dealing with exploration of the Feminine Divine arche...

    I found this after having read Bolen s Goddesses in Everywoman, and was surprised by how radically different Downing s style was Whereas Bolen analyzed the archetypes of all the major Greek goddesses of the first and second generations children and grandchildren of Cronus , Downing limited herself to Persephone, Hera, Athene, Artemis and Aphrodite, while also including the Greek heroine Ariadne and Gaia, a primordial deity In addition, where Bolen utilized a consistent structure for each chapter, discussing the mythology, archetypes, psychological difficulties etc, for each goddess, Downing discussed her selected goddesses in varied ways Importantly, Downing also spent a great deal of time detailing her personal experiences and feelings related to each goddess archetype, including extensive passages on dreams she thought were relevant.I would not recommend this as an introduction to Greek goddesses as archetypes in Jungian psychology However, if you already familiar with the archetypes, there are particular chapters that can enrich your understanding For example, I found Downing s discussion of the Hera archetype extremely helpful in learning about the goddess three fold nature and underlying motivations That being said, much of the book is fairly tiresome and she often goes on tangents that are only nominally related to the the goddesses in question If you have the patience to plow through those sections, she occasionally offers some insightful analys...

    Un muy peculiar libro que combina la mitograf a, con la confesi n personal y la psicolog a La diosa no deja de tener cosas interesantes, auqnue me quede muy fr a ante las confesiones de la autora, que no s c mo catalogar, que me interesan bien poco.

    I think this book will benefit from a second reading, because this first time around, it felt very much like a mixed bag to me Even though Downing starts off with an explanation of what she wants to set out to do in the book, it still seemed unclear to me exactly what she was talking about For the majority of the book, i felt confused I found myself thinking numerous times that, in order to fully understand what Downing was talking about, one would have to be acquainted with Freud Jung, along with the other writers she mentions quotes throughout the text A few parts, like the chapter on Athene i would have liked some explanation as to why Downing spelled it so, as opposed to Athen a the chapter on Gaia, felt understandable to me for some reason The others, like the chapter on Artemis, felt like a disconnected jumble with academic references quotations that went over my head It sometimes felt like Downing s language became confused bogged down at points, as well.However, i definitely want to reread it, because i fee...

    Although I value the goddesses and other ancient creatures and believe they have some kind of meaning even at this distance, I found Downing s interpretation self indulgent and so introspective as to be quite nearly uncomfortable Her monolog to ...

    Lots to ponder here Similar, in some ways, to Bolen s Goddesses in Everywoman, but autobiographical in nature.
