Local notes

Jung believed that great literature compensates for collective psychic imbalance, either by offering alternatives or by reflecting the imbalance. In this study, Snider explores Jung's theories by focusing on a wide selection of Western literature. Included are chapters on Merlin as he was portrayed by Victorian authors, Swinburne's Tristram of Lyonesse, Virginia Woolfs Orlando and The Waves, The Member of the Wedding and Clock Without Hands by Carson McCullers, Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray, and the po­etry of W. H. Auden.
