bitty, uninspired and far from compelling,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When They Severed Earth from Sky: How the Human Mind Shapes Myth (Paperback)
I bought the book after reading the two glowing reviews, and I put the book down after skimming it, hoping I can return it to the seller. In her account, the author has missed the transpersonal and psychological nature of myths altogether and offer interpretations of her own that are at times ludicrous. Being a textile historian, she is used to reconstructing a complete piece of weft and warp from fragments in two dimensions. Myths however, operate in 4 dimensions. This provides an interesting analogy as to how far off the mark the information is.
