The White Goddess. A historical grammar of poetic myth

The White Goddess is perhaps the finest of Robert Graves's works on the psychological and mythological sources of poetry. In this tapestry of poetic and religious scholarship, Graves explores the stories behind the earliest of European deities'the White Goddess of Birth, Love, and Death'who was worshipped under countless titles. He also uncovers the obscure and mysterious power of "pure poetry" and its peculiar and mythic language.

  • "Schr. verdedigt de stelling dat alle geïnspireerde dichtertaal af te leiden is van de magische taal, gebruikt in de oeroude cultus der Maangodin, die o.a. bewaard werd in de midden-Aziatische en Griekse mysteriënriten en de Keltische dichterscholen."
  • "The White Goddess, Moon-goddess, or Muse, a female diety that appears under many names and guises in myth, is the subject of this study of the language of poetry and folklore. This recurring symbol is examined from the Stone Age to Snow White."

  • "This book, first published more than sixty years ago, was the outcome of Robert Graves's vast reading and research into strange territories of folklore, mythology, religion, and magic. Erudite and impassioned, it is a scholar-poet's quest for the meaning of European myths, a polemic about the relations between man and woman, and also an intensely personal document in which Graves explores the sources of his own inspiration and, as he believed, all true poetry. Incorporating all of Graves's final revisions, his replies to two of the original reviewers, and an essay describing the months of illumination in which The White Goddess was written, this is the definitive edition of one of the most influential books of our time."@en
