The myth of Demeter and Persephone is regarded as the myth for women, as Oedipus is the myth for men, yet everyone reads its meaning differently. This diverse collection of writings approaches the myth from many perspectives--historical, literary, psychological, and ecological--and sheds light on the myth's ancient meaning as well as offering new insights into its contemporary implications.
