The Wise Wound

UK Publisher: Marion Boyars Publishers Ltd

Explores the historical and cultural legacy of this repression, from its effects on the way medicine treats women to the displaced appearance of menstrual imagery at all levels of our culture. Combining psychology, anthropology and poetry, the authors reinterpret the central myths of Christianity, including the Grail legends, and see the witch trials of the Middle Ages as a symptom of menstrual persecution
