The Oldest literature - the first words of civilized man to reach us - reveal a symbolic world view, a mythological perspective. From them we get a glimpse of a time when the human psyche was still largely governed by dreams and visions. They provide valuable insights into the long formative period of the Unconscious. The Ancient Near East was the cradle of the unconscious mind, where humanity's creative imagination found full expression for the first time. It was also where the modern conscious ego, with its intellectual bias, showed the first sign of mature development. In between these two psychological events lies the Age of Myth.
