From the Publisher:

A Jungian analyst and popular author illuminates our selves, our families, and our relationships through Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle--an enduring drama of mythic love and power.

From Library Journal:

The lengthy title of this work describes exactly what is covered. It is not necessary to know the story of the Ring Cycle in depth or even to be familiar with Norse mythology as the author covers both. Each of the four operas in the cycle is described individually with an analysis of the meaning according to Jungian psychology. As in her earlier works, Goddesses in Everywoman (HarperCollins, 1985) and Gods in Everyman (HarperSanFrancisco: HarperCollins, 1989), mythological figures are treated as archetypes which illustrate dysfunctional family structures and behaviors. This is a very readable, useful book for those working on self-examination and change, and is highly recommended for collections of both scholarly and popular psychology.
