"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This anthology consists of poems, illustrations, and short and too short articles, some from Wingspan (150,000 circulation), a journal which Harding edits. After briefly describing U.S. men's movements, the book explains, defends, and critiques mythopoetic activities which help men to "delve into their psyches by reintroducing them to literature, mythology, and art." Most participants are (white) "heterosexual, midlife men." Theories clarify and personal experiences show what happens at mythopoetic gatherings. The directory of organizations (which includes Canada) and multimedia bibliographies are excellent. This book and To Be a Man , edited by Keith Thompson see "Iron Men: The New Male Psyche," LJ 4/1/92, p. 134-35, have common contributors, but their focuses are dissimilar. Recommended for public libraries.
