The Mists of Avalon

Marion Zimmer Bradley


This remarkable retelling of the Arthurian Legend from the point of view of the women in the story is not just a wonderful and engaging tale with characters alive and multifaceted. It is also a masterful interpretation of the event of the meeting of Ninth Century European Christianity with the Celtic religion and the Divine Feminine. The encounter between these two very different ways of seeing the world is told with both an intimate depth and respect. To read it is to learn much about the human heart, human consciousness and our ability (and lack thereof) to really step into another’s shoes. Beautifully written, told with sensitivity and wise understanding. Highly recommended.
