by | Read by Robert Bly

Personal Growth • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

A national lethargy is pervading society. Bly suggests that there are no psychically whole, responsible, adult role models to help usher adolescents into maturity. Using poetry and folktales, he draws illuminating parallels between their mythological metaphors and our societal struggles. Bly is a poet first, and this performance of his prose feels much like one of his poetry readings; listeners are swept up in his rhythm. Bly moves adeptly from the roles of narrator to storyteller, little boy to crone. He points us toward rediscovering a vertical life-path instead of a horizontal one in which all of us are peers and no one gives respected guidance.
