C. G. Jung understood the anima in a large choice of how yet specially as a multifaceted archetype and as a box of power. In Anima and Africa: Jungian Essays on Psyche, Land, and Literature, Matthew A. Fike makes use of those ideas to research 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 facets resonate during the research and are emphasised within the starting chapters on Ernest Hemingway, Henry Rider Haggard, and Olive Schreiner. The anima-as-field could be "tapped" simply because the collective subconscious may be reached via nekyia or descent. those procedures are mentioned within the heart chapters on novels by way of Laurens van der submit, Doris Lessing, and J. M. Coetzee. the ultimate chapters emphasize the anima’s function in political/colonial disorder in novels via 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 offers 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 private and collective shadow. It will be crucial examining for lecturers and students of Jungian and post-Jungian reports, literary stories, and postcolonial reviews, and also will entice analytical psychologists and Jungian psychotherapists in perform and in training.
