Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The renowned tale of Amor and Psyche, from Apuleius's second-century Latin novel The Golden Ass, is one of the most charming fragments of classical literature. Neumann chose it as the exemplar of an unusual study of feminine psychology. Unfolding the spiritual and mythical background of the pagan narrative, he shows how the contest between the mortal maid Psyche and the great goddess Aphrodite over the god Amor--Aphrodite's son, Psyche's husband--yields surprising and valuable insights into the psychic life of women.

Book News Annotation:

**** Reprint of the renowned analytical psychologist's (1905-1960) psychological exegesis of the tale from Apuleius' 2nd century Latin novel The golden ass, originally published in German in 1952 and first published in English in 1956. Cited in BCL3.
