Product description

Synopsis

'Answers many of the questions that one had never thought or dared to ask' - from the foreword by Margaret Drabble This ground-breaking study of the facts, fantasies and taboos surrounding menstruation has helped bring about a profound shift in attitudes towards a natural phenomenon that has been reviled and denigrated over the centuries. Thoroughly researched yet highly readable, combining psychology, anthropology and poetry, Shuttle and Redgrove illustrate their theories using examples ranging from The Bible to such modern day pop horrors as vampire movies and cult film The Exorcist.
