In this famously provocative cornerstone of feminist literature, Susan Griffin explores the identification of women with the earth both as sustenance for humanity and as victim of male rage. Starting from Plato’s fateful division of the world into spirit and matter, her analysis of how patriarchal Western philosophy and religion have used language and science to bolster their power over both women and nature is brilliant and persuasive, coming alive in poetic prose.
Griffin draws on an astonishing range of sources from timbering manuals to medical texts to Scripture and classical literature in showing how destructive has been the impulse to disembody the human soul, and how the long separated might once more be rejoined. Poet Adrienne Rich calls Woman and Nature perhaps the most extraordinary nonfiction work to have merged from the matrix of contemporary female consciousness a fusion of patriarchal science, ecology, female history and feminism, written by a poet who has created a new form for her vision. ...The book has the impact of a great film or a fresco; yet it is intimately personal, touching to the quick of woman’s experience.”

From the Back Cover:
"Woman and Nature is about memory and mutilation, female anger as power, female presence as transforming force. . . . Griffin has collected here the most apparently disparate materials [from lumbering manuals to poetry to gynecology texts] into an extraordinary collage which, for all the research and hard intellectual work underlying it, becomes an intense physical experience."
-- Adrienne Rich

"My journey through the strange and familiar worlds of Woman and Nature has been strengthening and enspiriting. It is a book which I will read and re-read, assign to classes, give to friends. It is a work of great and daring vision."
-- Mary Daly

"Woman and Nature is my favorite -- in my opinion the best -- feminist book of the past twenty-five years. The prose is stunning: this is a book to be read aloud with friends."
-- Carol P. Christ, author of Rebirth of the Goddess and Diving Deep and Surfacing
