The White Goddess is perhaps the finest of Robert Graves's works on the psychological and mythological sources of poetry. In this tapestry of poetic and religious scholarship, Graves explores the stories behind the earliest of European deities--the White Goddess of Birth, Love, and Death--who was worshipped under countless titles. He also uncovers the obscure and mysterious power of "pure poetry" and its peculiar and mythic language.

An astonishing, weird and learned book. Suffers from a few spelling errors, and a lack of bibliography and other modern editorial standards. If another weird book like "Process and Reality" can merit a corrected scholarly edition, certainly this one should have it too.
