Poets, as a group, are known for their affinity to the mystical and mythological. The poetic temperament imbues and projects inner forms with aspects of corporeality, which the rest of us grasp only dimly as a spectre of consciousness, without significance or shape. The true poet is more likely to see them as a magical talisman, an object of necessary reality. Numbers, alphabets, calendars, zodiacs-- lunar and solar domains-- a primal order bubbles from the cauldron of Graves's conceptions. His spells are incarnate in trees, minerals, birds, planets-- metaphors of an underlying truth.
This analysis springs from two dense poems of spiritual mysticism, The Battle of the Trees (Welsh Druid) and Hanes Taliesen ( Early Christian). Presented as a vision, like Revelations, they pose a riddle and mix symbols. Graves's solution loosely ties his thesis together.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
caused much controversy that still rages on today in poetic, historic & religious circles.
Graves called it "a historical grammar of poetic myth" & while that may sound a little
vague there may be no better way to define it. "White Goddess" is based on the theory that
true poetry isn't the free & interpretive verse that most people believe, but is instead
spiritual in function & governed by ancient pagan religious ideas. It seeks to express, in a
language of traditional mythic symbols, the five-fold stages of a never ending life & death
cycle. Graves attempts to trace the origins of this mythic language back to ancient Europe
& suggests that it may have even originated before the building of stonehenge. In the
process of researching this mythic language he explains history in mythic terms & myth in
historical terms, throwing new light on both by use of his "analeptic" method, which he
argues is a valid form of research.
Graves argues that true poetry, by it's very nature, is pagan & that the druids were
it's undisputed masters. With the coming of Greek philosophers & later Christian
missionaries, the true function of poetry & myth were lost. He uses countless references
to support his claims & the reader should be familiar with Greek & Celtic history &
mythology to get the most from this book.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
