News of the universe : poems of twofold consciousness ( Book )
5 editions published between 1980 and 1995 in English and held by 989 libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Acclaimed poet and translator Robert Bly, known most recently for gatherings in which he guides men to greater self-knowledge, has created a unique multicultural collection of 150 poems that demonstrate the union of spirit between the poet and the natural world. Their "twofold" nature celebrates inner and outer consciousness, the participation of the object in the poetic vision. In this splendid anthology, Bly introduces the poems with extensive commentary to show society's changing attitudes toward nature - a movement away from anthropocentric assumptions fostered by Descartes, the church, imperial ambitions, and the rise of technology. Those beliefs held that human thought was the only sentient force in the universe and resulted in the subjugation of the natural world to the designs of the human intellect. Starting with the works of Pope, Swift, Milton, and others representing the "old position," the volume proceeds to the poetry of Blake, Hl̲derlin, Rilke, Goethe, Keats, and on to the enlightened sensibilities of Rexroth, Levertov, Berry, and, among many others, Bly himself. Bly's translations of Goethe, Rilke, Neruda, Lorca, Jimňez, Nerval, and others provide cross-cultural examples. The news this poetry brings is good news - of consciousness operating outside our own, all around us, and universally available to receptive spirits.

The maiden king : the reunion of masculine and feminine by Robert Bly ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 835 libraries worldwide
In The Maiden King, two wise teachers guide us through the rich, metaphorical world of an ancient folktale to explore the possibility of a new relationship between masculine and feminine. Here, both women and men will find a vision of the powerful feminine, an energy our contemporary world has not been able to receive or sustain. This book presents a map of the sorrow both men and women feel today in relation to each other, and it provides a guide to their eventual reconciliation. The steps of reunion are not laid out in sociological language, but rather in the ancient language of metaphor, which retains an astonishing color and vividness. Ultimately, by the end of The Maiden King, both masculine and feminine find a place of intersection where they can discard their false projections of each other.
