About this title


The author of A Chorus of Stones, a nominee for the Pulitzer Prize, explores the connections between the subordination of women and Western views of nature, religion, philosophy, and science, in a lyrical, erudite collection of essays.

From the Publisher:

The author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award nominee A Chorus Of Stones brings us an extraordinarily eloquent new collection of essays on the relationship between feminism, nature, and the evolution of Western Culture.

In an astonishing array of essays displaying the depth and range of her penetrating intelligence, critically acclaimed author and feminist Susan Griffin examines the nature of women and women's role in Western Culture, and shows how the ways that we subordinate the role of women in society are deliberately similar to the ways that we attempt to exclude and subordinate nature.

In her award-winning examination of the nature of war, A Chorus Of Stones,Griffin showed us new ways of thinking about society and war, about private and public lives. In The Eros Of Everyday Life, she once again takes us on a startling journey, showing us the profound connections between religion and philosophy, science and nature, Western thought and the role of women, the supremacy of abstract thought over the forces of life. Collecting both Susan Griffin's best essays over the past decade and two original essays, including the brilliant opening investigation, "Sometimes It Is Named," The Eros Of Everyday Life combines the beautiful lyricism and sensibility of a poet with the intellectual rigor of one of the finest and most original minds writing today.

For Susan Griffin's dedicated readers and anyone interested in the role of women, The Eros Of Everyday Life is nothing short of an intellectual and literary feast. Bon Appetit !
