Amor and Psyche: The Psychic Development of the Feminine - A Commentary on the Tale by Apuleius; Bollingen Series LIV

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1990. Reprint. Softcover. Octavo. 182pp. Bibliography & index. From the cover: "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." Covers lightly rubbed and a bit darkened, edges chafed, light bump to lower corner, otherwise a tight clean VG copy. Item #55018
