The White Goddess by Robert Graves


A complex and difficult read. Strands of history and myth are tied together to prove a difficult premise.

It does however seem somewhat plausible that poetry arose out of the ancient mystical devotion and incantations to the mother goddess.

It is just that some of the evidence cited by Mr Graves seems somewhat tenuous, difficult to understand or lost like some missing ancient annals of our mythical history.
