Grasping Men’s Metaphors

Grasping Men’s Metaphors is a complex, difficult, and sometimes funny book. It is divided into three sections and provides copious endnotes for its many scriptural, liturgical and literary references. The introductory section, “Amazons and Astronauts,” provides a feminist frame that is followed by “Profanities,” full of verses. The final and longest section, towards which the whole book moves, is “Sacraments,” which includes the long poem “Song of Innocence and Experience”, set on a text from Blake and another from Corinthians.
