Michael Meade tells an ancient, provocative story of the Half-giantess, who keeps a forbidding lake of sorrows and a boiling cauldron of angers and fears. The story opens a consideration of ways in which the human psyche can become spellbound. This leads to a discussion of neurotic conditions and psychosomatic states which can befall anyone. In mythic terms, solutions for these ancient spells as well as current psychological conditions require going, consciously and directly into the place of the spellbound area.
