There were times reading this book that Bly would communicate an idea which rang so true to me that I’d literally get physical shivers up and down my spine. It is that powerful and resonant. This book has made me see my own life and history with an illuminating radiance, and I’ve been able to discover bits and pieces of myself that were lying in dark corners.
This book is not for those who live purely on a rational plane. If you despise poetry, for instance, you may find the book tedious, boring and difficult. If, on the other hand, you can read between the lines, visualize abstract metaphors, and appreciate poetic language, then this book will offer you a treasure trove of insight about yourself.
