9780060964900: The Flight of the Wild Gander: Explorations in the Mythological Dimensions of Fairy Tales, Legends and Symbols

An exploration of the individual and geographic origins and the symbolic contents of myths, this book looks at the range of mythologies including Grimm's fairy tales and the native American legends. The author describes the symbols that have been used to describe human experience and shows how these symbols - and, subsequently, our myths - have been shaped and reshaped over time. He emphasizes that "myths are not to be judged as true or false, but as effective or ineffective," for they are "not invented, but occur, and are recognized by seers and poets to be cultivated and employed as catalysts of well-being".
