The sibling society by Robert Bly( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and Persian and held by 1,621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his use of poetry and myth, Bly takes us beyond the sociological statistics and tired psychobabble to see our dilemma afresh. In this sibling culture that he describes, we tolerate no one above us and have no concern for anyone below us. Like sullen teenagers we live in our peer group, glancing side to side, rather than upward, for direction. We have brought down all forms of hierarchy because hierarchy is based on power, often abused. Yet with that leveling we have also destroyed any willingness to look up or down. Without that "vertical gaze," as Bly calls it, we have no longing for the good, no deep understanding of evil. We shy away from great triumphs and deep sorrow. We have no elders and no children; no past and no future. What we are left with is spiritual flatness. The talk show replaces family. Instead of art we have the Internet. In the place of community we have the mall

Silence in the snowy fields; poems by Robert Bly( Book )

49 editions published between 1953 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poems of Robert Bly are rooted deep in the earth. Snow and sunshine, barns and cornfields and cars on the empty nighttime roads, abandoned Minnesota lakes and the mood of America now - these are his materials. He sees and talks clearly: he uses no rhetoric nor manner striving for effect, but instead the simple statement that in nine lines can embody a mood, reveal a profound truth, illuminate in an important way the inward and hidden life. This is a poet of the modern world, thoroughly aware of the complexities of the moment but equally mindful of the great stream of life - all life - of which mankind is only a part. --Wesleyan University Press

In this 1979 collection, Bly revisits the western Minnesota terrain and plainspoken style of his first collection, Silence in the Snowy Fields.

The maiden king : the reunion of masculine and feminine by Robert Bly( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 798 WorldCat member 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
