View all copies of this ISBN edition:

What distinguishes this book from previous books on mythology and psychology is that Adams provides so many impressive examples of how myths appear in contemporary life. Adams examines the psychological significance of Oedipus, Odysseus, Hercules, the Hydra, Poseidon, Chronos, Medusa, Tezcatlipoca, the labyrinth, the Minotaur, the griffin, the unicorn, and many other mythological creatures, and concludes by presenting a dream that beautifully exemplifies the “myth of the hero.” With wit and clarity, this book brings us into the incredibly rich psychic reality of the infinitely creative human imagination. Michael Vannoy Adams declares that the ancient gods and goddesses, heroes and heroines, and fabulous creatures are alive and well within us. They exist in the mythological unconscious and emerge in the dreams and fantasies of modern men and women
