The Long journey home: re-visioning the myth of Demeter and Persephone for our time
The myth of Demeter and Persephone is regarded as the myth for women, as Oedipus is the myth for men, yet everyone reads its meaning differently. This diverse collection of writings approaches the myth from many perspectives--historical, literary, psychological, and ecological--and sheds light on the myth's ancient meaning as well as offering new insights into its contemporary implications.

Review: The Long Journey HomeUser Review - Jesse Whyte - Goodreads
It's sad that space constraints stop the inclusion of many interesting pieces, but Downing's commentary is fantastic, notes are excellent, and the bibliography is top notch. With all the varied pieces, at times the book lacks pacing, but Downing's material alone is worth the price of admission. Read full review
