Description

In this quietly provocative book, Carolyn G. Heilbrun opens our eyes to the ways in which the concept of androgyny--the realization of man in woman and woman in man--has run, like a hidden river, from its source in pre-Hellenic myth through the literature of the Western world. The androgynous ideal shows itself to be a creative and civilizing force conducive to the survival of a truly human society.
