It has served as a source of inspiration for many, including T.S. Eliot and Sigmund Freud. It sets out the seminal themes of myth and magic that emerge throughout the history of the human imagination.;Themes such as the death of the fisher king and the sacred oak grove are traced through the rituals of ceremony and sacrific from Ancient Greece, through druid and shaman traditions, the worlds of Odin and Arthur, to the bedrock of image and symbol that underlies human consciousness.
