IMAGES OF THE UNTOUCHED • Ed. Joan Stroud & Gail Thomas
Dallas Institute of Humanities & Culture / 1982
Softcover / 201 pages

This collection of eight essays develops the imagery of the virgin in pathology, culture, myths, religion, and dream. It seems important to amplify the realm of the virgin, for we are all pulled by the virgin's lure. We feel ambivalence toward this complex image; demands of the virginal soul, "to have one's own space" or "not to come too close" seem to appear with double meaning. The authors of these essays, who include Robert Sardello, Thomas Moore, and James Hillman, attempt to explore these virginal demands in greater detail.
