Angeles Arrien is an anthropologist and author of many books including The Four-Fold Way: Walking the Paths of Warrior, Teacher, Healer, and Visionary. In this volume, she salutes myth as that which "connects us most deeply with our own nature and our place in the world." The author believes that the nine daughters of Zeus are "the issue of Divine love." These Muses can draw out our creativity and school our souls. Arrien devotes a chapter to each of these incarnations of the Sacred Feminine: the Muses of eloquence and epic poetry; of history and writing; of love poetry; of music; of tragedy; of oratory, sacred hymns, and poetry; of dance; of comedy; and of astronomy and science. The sagacious author has created a playful and edifying sourcebook filled with illustrations taken from Greek art, thought-piece quotations, questions and exercises, and modern or historical examples of each Muse. And just to demonstrate how up-to-date she is, Arrien includes helpful web site information on many of the themes covered in this inspirational work.
