IPTC INFO
CaptionRobert Graves described The White Goddess as "a historical grammar of the language of poetic myth." Relying on arguments from etymology and the use of forensic techniques to uncover what he calls 'iconotropic' redaction of original myths Graves argues for the worship of a single goddess under many names an idea that came to be known as "Matriarchal religion" in feminist theology of the 1970s. --- --- --- The Golden Bough 1922 but begun in 1890 an early anthropological study by Sir James George Frazer is the starting point for much of Graves's argument and Graves thought in part that his book made explicit what Frazer only hinted at. --- --- --- Graves wrote: "Sir James Frazer was able to keep his beautiful rooms at Trinity College Cambridge until his death by carefully and methodically sailing all around his dangerous subject as if charting the coastline of a forbidden island without actually committing himself to a declaration that it existed. What he was saying-not-saying was that Christian legend dogma and ritual are the refinement of a great body of primitive and even barbarous beliefs and that almost the only original element in Christianity is the personality of Jesus." --- --- --- Graves's The White Goddess deals with goddess worship as the prototypical religion analysing it largely from literary evidence in myth and poetry. Graves based his work on the premise that the language of poetic myth anciently current in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe was a magical language bound up with popular religious ceremonies in honour of the Moon-goddess or Muse some of them dating from the Old Stone Age and that this remains the language of true poetry. --- --- --- Graves concluded in the second and expanded edition that the male-dominant monotheistic god of Judaism and its successors were the cause of the White Goddess's downfall and thus the source of much of the modern world's woe.
