The author blended psychology and mythology to explore the lives of modern men and women in "Goddesses in Everywoman and Gods in Everyman". Now she looks to the mythic, multi-generational family drama of the "Ring Cycle" operas for the archetypal truths and fundamental insights. Wagner's "Ring Cycle" offers a mythology of the dysfunctional family and the patriarchal society where the quest for power is a substitute for love. We respond to the "Ring" because we recognize ourselves and our relationships in the "Cycle's" stern father, disempowered mother, abandoned children, and brave truth-tellers. Bolen shows how when we understand our patterns and their effects, we begin to free ourselves from our personal and global "Ring Cycle" of destruction and dysfunction.
