Inhaltsangabe: Spiders & Spinsters weaves a tapestry of voices and images--folk, popular, tribal, ancient and contemporary, by women and men, scholars and critics, psychologists and artists--to show how women have fared in classical Greco-Roman, Judeo-Christian, and indigenous American mythologies. It is a rich sourcebook of goddesses, guides, maidens, crones, heroines, matriarchs, gossips, and those who have portrayed and interpreted them. Hailed as 'wonderful, as well as useful' ( Baltimore Sun) and 'a welcome addition to the field of mythology' ( Choice), Spiders & Spinsters is a valuable resource for students and scholars in mythology, anthropology, literature, art, psychology, religion, and women studies. It also speaks to creative artists of all kinds and to general readers with interests in story, ritual, dreams, and gender.
