A study of the psychic processes that move people to strive for wholeness of personality, an integration of all innate capacities.
Barbara Hannah studies the psychic processes that move people to strive for wholeness of personality, an integration of all innate capacities. Since this inner drama manifests itself with special intensity in the lives of creative individuals she has taken up the biographies and literary productions of five major English novelists - Robert Louis Stevenson, Mary Webb, and Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte - along with one non-literary artist - Branwell Bronte.
Not only do Stevenson, Webb, and the four Bronte's take on fresh, unsuspected dimensions, but the concepts of analytical psychology are also broadened and deepened as Barbara Hannah indicates how contemporary people may gain insight from these examples in their own efforts to strive towards wholeness.
Barbara Hannah was born in England and went to Zurich in the 1920s to study with C.G. Jung. She remained in Switzerland where she was a practicing analyst and teacher at the C.G. Jung Institute. She is the author of 'Encounters with the Soul' and 'Jung: His Life and Work, A Biographical Memoir'. A collection of her lectures, 'The Cat, Dog and Horse Lectures', is also available from Chiron Publications.
