Product description

Book Description

The White Goddess by Robert Graves - a fusion of scholarship on folklore, mythology, religion and poetry - is a work of unprecedented originality and brilliance.

Synopsis

A work first published in 1948 in which Graves argues that the language of poetic myth current in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe was a magical language bound up with popular religious ceremonies in honour of the Moon-goddess, or Muse - some dating from the Old Stone Age.
