Description
This is an exploration of the malaise of our time, the wounded-feeling function, through the mystic stories of The Fisher King and The Handless Maiden. Johnson looks to the heightened, magical language of myth for an analysis of, and a prescription for curing, this contemporary malaise. The Fisher King story can be seen as an experience of the masculine in either gender; so too, the tale of The Handless Maiden explores both a woman's interior experience, as well as being an allegory of the feminine element in us all.
