From the Back Cover:

From the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet to the Maori Wai-nui and the Navajo Changing Bear Maiden, this unique and inclusive collection takes a fresh, gender-conscious look at myth, folk tale and legend from across the globe.

Divided into sections – the Near East, Europe, Asia, Oceania and America – each part outlines the mythological system of a particular culture, and then goes on to look at female mythic figures and their symbolic meanings, both within the mythic context and the culture as a whole. The result is a wonderfully diverse and insightful companion to the stories which have shaped our modern world.

About the Author:

Carolyne Larrington is Supernumerary Fellow in Medieval English at St John’s College, Oxford.
