Psyche's Knife

Archetypal Explorations of Love and Power

Elizabeth Nelson

152 pp.  

Chiron Publications


Published:  December 2011


Psyche's Knife examines the myth of Eros and Psyche as a metaphor for the development of soul in the psychology of women, explicating the tropes of love and power as depicted by Psyche's use of a knife in attempting to learn the identity of her lover.

Nelson examines the metaphor of the knife from all angles—alchemical, sacrificial, lunar, phallic—and delves into the mythology and imagery of women and knives, connecting our deep past to our present lives and our possibilities for the future.
