Abstract: 'These essays...are attempts to evoke a sense of the powers of soul which dwell in individual lives and in culture, ineradicable powers whose presence is recurrently manifest in myth and enacted in ritual. They belong to common life--mundane life, shared life. The belief underlying these explorations is that the communal act of remembrance of these powers gives them place and summons listeners to share their presence.'
