9780062500861: Ring of power: The abandoned child, the authoritarian father, and the disempowered feminine : a Jungian understanding of Wagner's Ring Cycle

The author blended psychology and mythology to explore the lives of modern men and women in "Goddesses in Everywoman and Gods in Everyman". Now she looks to the mythic, multi-generational family drama of the "Ring Cycle" operas for the archetypal truths and fundamental insights. Wagner's "Ring Cycle" offers a mythology of the dysfunctional family and the patriarchal society where the quest for power is a substitute for love. We respond to the "Ring" because we recognize ourselves and our relationships in the "Cycle's" stern father, disempowered mother, abandoned children, and brave truth-tellers. Bolen shows how when we understand our patterns and their effects, we begin to free ourselves from our personal and global "Ring Cycle" of destruction and dysfunction.
