A landmark work of psychology; the author uses the ancient myth of Amor and Psyche as the springboard for a brilliant, perceptive exploration of how one becomes a mature and complete woman.

A Jungian classic from the 70s; simplistic in its application of psychology but popular in its time of emerging feminism.

I really enjoyed this book. Short and concise, it takes the myth of Eros and Psyche and translates it to the psychology of the female in a fairly plausible way. All though it does not encompass all of the female psyche, it mainly focuses on love and relationships. A really fun read with come definite gems.
