Achetypal Patterns in Modern Fiction

To undertake a program of intensive reading in the works of C.G. Jung and his interpreters, primarily Erich Neumann, Jane Harrison, Joseph Campbell, Esther Harding, and Irene de Castillejo. To apply the Jungian model to selected works of Thomas Mann, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf and Doris Lessing. To study the nature of creative imagination, to determine the aesthetic experience of the teacher, to find the place of poetry in human experience generally--using the psychoanalytic approach to these issues. To attempt to discover, through the reading of literary works by and about women, whether there is a specifically feminine sensibility or psychology, and, if there is, how it relates to human nature in general.
