Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: First in a series of goddess books for girls and their mothers, Demeter & Persephone tells the much older pre-patriarchal version of the myth, a version which centers on the loving relationship between the mother goddess Demeter and her beautiful, kindhearted, courageous and spiritual daughter, Persephone. She leaves her mother and ventures into the underworld to bless the spirits of the dead and give them eternal peace. Universal women's issues such as motherhood, separation, self-empowerment and joyful reunion are embedded in this archetypal myth of the changing seasons. Later patriarchal additions to the story (rape, abduction, blackmail, incest) are noticeably absent in what is thought to be the goddess-worshipping Bronze age version of the tale. There are additional non-fiction sidebars on topics such as: grain agriculture and civilization, what are myths and archetypes?, The 2,000 year-long Eleusinian Mystery Cult, and Minoan civilization and art, especially fresco painting. There is also a list of resources, and an explanatory essay which supplements the text. All original illustrations are by the author.

Über den Autor: Marjorie Meyers Graham, M.A., taught college English, humanities and women's studies for 23 years. She currently teaches women's studies and watercolor painting in the midwest and leads artists' retreats to Door County, WI. She studied design at the U. of Texas, painting and drawing at the Aegean School of Fine Arts on Paros, Greece, and landscape painting with Yianni Ziogas on Samos, Greece. Quote: The context for this book is my 38+ years fascination with the many layers and dimensions of ancient Greek and Minoan culture. The wall frescoes found in the Bronze age archeological dig at Akrotiri reveal the joyful nature-loving spirit of the pre-patriarchal goddess-worshipping Minoan period. Inspired by the grace and power of 3,500 year-old images, I imagine new combinations and interpretations. These paintings led me to create this illustrated version of the 'real' myth of Demeter and Persephone. Marge Graham sits on the boards of the Wilmette Arts Guild and artistic circles, both in Wilmette, IL. She's a founding mother of The Women's Exchange in Winnetka, IL and owner of A Woman's Place: Retreats and Seminars Celebrating Women and Creativity. She lives in Northfield, IL with her husband, Stephen Graham. Her website is marjoriegraham.com
