'This book on the bythology of the Holy Grail in relation to the human experience of speaking represents a remarkable achievement. In the midst of a post modern culture whose distrust of words and cynicism concerning language is only exceeded by split-thinking with regard to idea and experience. Dr. Sussman shows by way of the archetypal tale of Parzival a perduring path for the journey to a healing speaking and an authentic loving.' --David Miller
