By Matthew A. Fike

C. G. Jung understood the anima in a wide selection of the way yet specially as a multifaceted archetype and as a box of strength. In Anima and Africa: Jungian Essays on Psyche, Land, and Literature, Matthew A. Fike makes use of those ideas to investigate male characters in recognized British, American, and African fiction.



Jung wrote often concerning the Kore (maiden, matron, crone) and the "stages of eroticism" (Eve, Mary, Helen, Sophia). the female principle’s many points resonate in the course of the research and are emphasised within the starting chapters on Ernest Hemingway, Henry Rider Haggard, and Olive Schreiner. The anima-as-field will be "tapped" simply because the collective subconscious should be reached via nekyia or descent. those procedures are mentioned within the center chapters on novels through Laurens van der submit, Doris Lessing, and J. M. Coetzee. the ultimate chapters emphasize the anima’s position in political/colonial disorder in novels by means of Barbara Kingsolver, Chinua Achebe/Nadine Gordimer, and Aphra Behn.



Anima and Africa applies Jung’s African trips to literary texts, explores his curiosity in Haggard, and gives clean insights into van der Post’s overdue novels. The examine discovers Lessing’s use of Jung’s autobiography, deepens the scholarship on Coetzee’s use of Faust, and explores the anima’s dating to the non-public and collective shadow. It will be crucial interpreting for lecturers and students of Jungian and post-Jungian reviews, literary reviews, and postcolonial reviews, and also will attract analytical psychologists and Jungian psychotherapists in perform and in training.
