Nice collection of essays on the theology of polytheism. A couple of them were kind of pointless, but overall a fascinating read. A bit of over emphasis on Greco-Roman and Egyptian mythologies, but inclusive of a lot of divergent traditions.

Recensione sul blog:

The Maiden of the Wilds turned to Orion then and
warned him: "Your pride blinds you, hunter, to how you
offend Earth Mother. You kill the pregnant, the strong, the
quick, and the helpless. How, then, are the children of Earth
Moder to remain strong and quick and grow in numbers if
you hunt them so?"
- Orion: An EcoFable by Rebecca Buchanan



Ho comprato questo libro a gennaio dell'anno scorso, ma non era mai il momento giusto per leggerlo. Ora che l'ho letto, posso dire che non ha soddisfatto completamente le mie aspettative, come invece era stato per altri due libri curati da questa associazione che io avevo già letto.
Il percorso, il viaggio, di un politeista è molto difficile, sopratutto in un mondo come il nostro, ormai in decadenza e distaccatosi dal divino.
A suo tempo, avevo deciso di prendere questo libro perché mi trovavo in una parte difficile del mio viaggio personale, e volevo sentire le voci di altri politeisti e, in generale, di altri pagani. Così è arrivata nelle mie mani questa antologia, piuttosto breve ma piena di spunti, fatta di racconti, saggi e poesie e non tutti rilevanti per il mio percorso ma comunque illuminanti.
Ovviamente non posso parlare di personaggi o trama, perché non ci sono. E poi, non ho neanche molto da dire in generale in quanto è difficile, per me, spiegare quello che ho ottenuto dalla lettura di questo libro.
Il tema è quello del viaggio, come ho detto, che risulta interessante se fatto bene.
Alcuni dei miei testi preferiti sono stati: I shall set free my hair and wear a fawn skin di Rebecca Lynn Scott, che parla della relazione tra l'estate e la morte, e del suo rapporto con Dioniso ed Hekate; She who holds the Reins di Brenda Kyria Skotas, che riguarda la dea Hera; la poesia Persephone di Valentina Cano; e Orion: an EcoFable di Rebecca Buchanan, una revisitazione del mito di Orione e Artemis. Quest'ultimo in particolare mi ha colpito perché ben scritto e perché, essendo anche lei pagana, l'autrice ha il rispetto necessario per parlare degli dei.
Devo dire che all'inizio ho trovato questa lettura un pochino noiosa. Sopratutto la parte iniziale riguarda percorsi lontanissimi dal mio e anche in disaccordo con il mio credo, quindi mi risultava difficile continuare a leggere e la voglia di saltare le pagine era tanta. Ma ho persistito, perché misembrava giusto informarmi anche su altri credi. Poi la lettura ha cominciato a interessarmi quando sono arrivata a opere riguardanti il mondo dodecateista e romano.
Alcuni dei testi sono scritti davvero bene, altri, come ad esempio The Song di Szmeralda Shanel, non mi sono piaciuti per nulla. Lo stile di questo racconto mi ha reso difficile la lettura, e nel complesso non mi ha davvero attratto.
Un testo che mi è piaciuto molto ma lontanto dal mio percorso è stato invece Hadrian in Hyperborea: The Enigma of the Emperor's Wanderings di P. Sufenas Virius Lupus, che si concentra sulla figura dell'imperatore Adriano e sulla sua vita.
Nel complesso, però, l'antologia mi ha fatto capire alcune cose sul percorso degli altri e sul mio percorso personale, ridandomi l'energia necessaria per portare avanti il mio credo in un momento difficile. Quindi penso che alla fine abbia servito allo scopo per cui l'ho comprato.

I have wanted to read this book for a while, and I finally did. And -let me tell you- this book is great. I wanted to read this to understand better my dear goddess Hera. And I did. This book is full of beautiful work -poetry, stories, essays...- written by Hellenic polytheists and non, and it makes you feel closer to the goddess and wish you too had the skills to contribute.
Hera is so misunderstood, I wish there were more books around about how she truly is, made by polytheists for polytheists. The Queen is so much more than the jealous and revengful wife!… (mere)

Fantastic book. A bit confusing because it isn't divided into sections like the Hera anthology buuut I liked it nonetheless. It makes you understand better Dionysos and his devotees
