Review of The Goddess Myth

"The Goddess Myth in Contemporary Literature and Popular Culture is the first book I have seen that ties together insights from feminist archaeology, folklore and mythology, literature, pop culture, and contemporary feminist theory in order to better understand the importance of goddess figures in both historical and contemporary modes of thought. Surveying existing scholarship on goddess culture (everything from what we know about prehistorical societies to current-day neo-pagan, Wiccan, and feminist spirituality practices) and adding a folkloristic lens to analyze literary and pop culture versions of goddess myths and tales, Mary J. Magoulick offers a nuanced and intriguing exploration of what goddess figures can and do mean in a variety of media."

- Jeana Jorgensen, folklorist and author
