Il libro-culto che ha cambiato la vita di milioni di donne. Attingendo alle fiabe e ai miti delle più diverse tradizioni culturali, Clarissa Pinkola Estés fonda una psicanalisi del femminile attorno alla straordinaria intuizione della Donna Selvaggia, intesa come forza psichica potente, istintuale e creatrice, lupa ferina e al contempo materna, ma soffocata da paure, insicurezze e stereotipi.

Let me just start with saying that there are two kinds of people who would NOT like this book: 1- chauvanistic men/pigs(hehe), and 2- women who are uptight with their religious and social beliefs (and the stepford housewives type). This book is for all women, who struggled through life because of the Leggi tutto
When I worked at Ballantine Books in the early to mid-1990s, this was by far the most successful book the house had ever published (it probably still is). I couldn't get over it -- this piece of shit was a runaway best-seller? Overblown, overwritten, self-important, pseudo-intellectual -- what the h Leggi tutto
This book saved my life. I was seriously struggling with an enormous amount of class-related stress, centered around a completely unsuspected attack on my creative potential. After a few months of being shredded mentally and creatively by the people I'd expected to lean on for support and physically Leggi tutto
Yeah yeah, the book may be seen as a cry of independence for all women out there who need to get in touch with their "wild" side. However, my reservations: - The author tried to say that women should be who they are, but continually portrayed one single type of women: women who had artistic urges, thi Leggi tutto

Here's the deal on this book. 1) It is all too easy to make fun or roll one's eyes or be actually pretty nasty about it, because it's obviously got a ridiculously embarassing title. I personally got the book as a cheerful joke from my dad one Christmas, and I thought to myself, "gag me!" 2) But: Once Leggi tutto

Jungian psychoanalytic theory applied to folktales and fairy tales from around the world. Yes? Yes. I want to carry copies of this book around and hand them out, proselytorily, to everyone woman I encounter who feels confined, constrained, and soul-sick. This book has helped me to reconnect with my i Leggi tutto
Every feminist/spiritual/literature/writing related teacher I've ever had has told me I should read this book, so I finally did. Frankly, it was annoying. The ideas are wonderful, but the writing is obnoxious. I didn't know what the phrase "purple prose" really meant until I read this book. She also Leggi tutto
