Celtic Queen Maeve and Addiction: An Archetypal Perspective
|Author:||Sylvia Brinton Perera|
This volume presents the Irish goddess Queen Maeve in full, and invites us to comprehend the wilderness of the Celtic imagination. She shows how Maeve, whose name means inebriation and whose drink was the sacred mead, represents the profoundly human and archetypal need for experiences of ecstasy and sovereignty. She brings with her the sensitivity of a psychoanalyst who has companioned many souls suffering with their own additions of modern life.
