Followers of Robert Bly, award-winning poet and leader of "the men's movement," and Marion Woodman, a Jungian analyst who focuses on feminine consciousness, may enjoy hearing them read their own work. This work explores the struggle for power between the masculine and the feminine--using an ancient Russian foldtake, The Maiden King. It is apparent that neither is a professional reader; this may necessitate a higher level of attentiveness by the listener. But given the nature of the material, close attention is required in any event. Bly begins with his interpretation of the tale, in a manner reminiscent of an absent-minded professor pacing the lecture hall. Woodman's presentation follows in a style that is more measured, direct and intense. The two interpretations are thought provoking, separately and in combination.
