Looks at the relevance of the Greek mythic figure of Electra to the psychology of contemporary young girls and women. Describing Electra as a dark puella identified with Saturn, trapped in mourning for her father and hatred of her mother, this book explores how this myth appears in the lives of women and how they deepen their understanding of it.
