This stunning collection brings together goddess mythologies from across the globe: familiar, unknown, forgotten -- spectacular! Written by pioneering storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton, whose 30-year career has focused on researching female protagonists, these tales are conjured in vivid and poetic language. The book includes information about the pattern of myths and how they are represented globally and revels in the female, exploring desire, death, and the female body. Journey from Alaska to Mesopotamia and visit ancient Persian and Aztec cultures, meeting Sedna whose fingertips become sea creatures and Persephone whose sojourn in the Underworld brings Spring. This is the most significant contemporary collection of goddess myths and encourages readers to value the female, preserve culture and re-ignite storytelling traditions. AUTHOR: Sally Pomme Clayton is a pioneering storyteller and writer. She co-founded The Company of Storytellers with Ben Haggarty and Hugh Lupton in 1985, creating ground-breaking performances, and played a pivotal role in the current storytelling revival. Much of her work has focused on strong female protagonists and she is currently touring to promote The Frog Princess Punked, a feisty feminist fairytale for children. She has created unique work for the Royal Shakespeare Company, The London Philharmonic Orchestra and The British Museum. She has lectured on world oral traditions and has an M.Mus in Ethnomusicology. She lives in London. 57 b/w illustrations
