by Estes, Clarissa Pinkola
By Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D., a senior Jungian analyst with many years of experience. Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype. 520 pages. ISBN 0-345-37744-3. From an Amazon reader review: "The author is not only a Jungian analyst, but a storyteller. She is steeped in the traditions of storytelling from both the Latin and the Hungarian sides of her family, and I very much enjoyed the ways in which she uses this legacy of the storyteller as healer to make her points. I never thought of storytelling in this way before, but reading this book I found it to be true. (I feel that her stories have helped heal me.) I am a storyteller myself, of a sort, so for me the book was a kind of homecoming. If you have ever wondered why fairy tales seem so cruel and peculiar, you will find the answers in this book. Fairy tales have been mangled in the translation, but this author shows you where they came from and what they are really about."
