This book is an outline of the meaning of the Irish myths as a wisdom tradition of relevance to us today in contemporary life.  Peter stresses that to navigate a path into the labyrinth that is this tradition, it is important to stay anchored in your own ‘ground’.  In the case of Peter this is the field of psychoanalysis and archetypal psychology so popularised by Freud, Jung Hillman and Campbell.  He argues that ‘psychology needs re-mythologising’ as he goes about his task of mythology being psychoanalysed.  This book is an essential read for anyone interested in the relevance of mythology to a troubled modernity.
