Patricia Daly-Lipe

Myth, Magic, and Metaphor

MYTH, MAGIC, and METAPHOR takes the reader on a journey. This book was not written to provide answers. It was written to provoke questions and ignite the imagination while examining history, art, literature, philosophy, mathematics, and music as components of the creative process. It is a voyage of discovery, and maybe its real goal is simply the joy of knowing the journey will never end! Patricia Daly-Lipe encourages us “to experience the sense of wonder we knew as children, to use our imagination, to feel and absorb the world around us, to listen, not just to hear, to see, not just to look; in sum, to become intoxicated with life. The tool is the heart; the medium is words.”

    She chooses simple vocabulary and chops her phrases to flow easily, chant-like at times, reminiscent of black preachers.

    not only recites the words of her black African heritage but she writes in a metered frame, song-like when read aloud.

    Of all the contemporary writers, her work is on the top of my list for verbal musicality. Morrison
