9780007510665: Labyrinths: Emma Jung, Her Marriage to Carl and the Early Years of Psychoanalysis
Revue de presse :

“Impressive...An entertaining portrait.” (New Yorker)

“Clay’s narrative displays expert scholarship in drawing on a variety of archival sources, some never used before in a published study...with its imagery and dramatic tenor, this is a tale within which Jung himself would find many psychoanalytic riches, even as it places some of his greatest innovations at the feet of a fascinating woman.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Sympathetic, carefully researched...Emma’s volatile, difficult husband intrudes, resulting in a portrait of a troubled marriage and the rivalrous beginnings of psychoanalysis...A sensitive biography of a woman whose emotional and intellectual strengths were the ballast of her marriage and family.” (Kirkus)

“Arresting, well-researched... Clay’s Emma was every bit the firebrand innovator Carl was, though without his psychoses and dramatic bravado, making her a real icon and this a compelling and significant biography.” (Booklist)

“Clay navigates the maze-like story with perspicacity and ease.... It’s a gripping story of two talented individuals, their fascinating, often troubled, but ultimately enduring partnership, and how together they shaped the brave new world of psychoanalysis.” (The Observer (London))

“Clay remains a clear, unostentatious narrator ... Emma’s voice - as well as her insight and daring - is loud and clear ... admirable.” (Daily Telegraph (London))

“Clay’s book is a warm-hearted tribute to Emma’s wisdom and tenacity.” (Sunday Times (London))

“Labyrinths’ finally gives a voice to Emma ... Clay’s story is riveting because the patients’ stories are so gripping ... Clay creates a wonderful atmosphere in her writing and ... negotiates the labyrinth with aplomb.” (The Times (London))

“Catrine Clay’s absorbing new biography charts the twists and turns in some of the key lives involved in that historical moment, in particular those of Emma Jung and her more famous husband Carl.” (Financial Times)

“Engaging ... acute ... For Clay, Emma Jung’s quiet growth to dominance over the psychoanalytic establishment her husband had constructed seems the more significant.” (Literary Review)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

 A sensational, eye-opening account of Emma Jung’s complex marriage to Carl Gustav Jung and the hitherto unknown role she played in the early years of the psychoanalytic movement.

Clever and ambitious, Emma Jung yearned to study the natural sciences at the University of Zurich. But the strict rules of proper Swiss society at the beginning of the twentieth century dictated that a woman of Emma’s stature—one of the richest heiresses in Switzerland—travel to Paris to "finish" her education, to prepare for marriage to a suitable man.

Engaged to the son of one of her father’s wealthy business colleagues, Emma’s conventional and predictable life was upended when she met Carl Jung. The son of a penniless pastor working as an assistant physician in an insane asylum, Jung dazzled Emma with his intelligence, confidence, and good looks. More important, he offered her freedom from the confines of a traditional haute-bourgeois life. But Emma did not know that Jung’s charisma masked a dark interior—fostered by a strange, isolated childhood and the sexual abuse he’d suffered as a boy—as well as a compulsive philandering that would threaten their marriage.

Using letters, family interviews, and rich, never-before-published archival material, Catrine Clay illuminates the Jungs’ unorthodox marriage and explores how it shaped—and was shaped by—the scandalous new movement of psychoanalysis. Most important, Clay reveals how Carl Jung could never have achieved what he did without Emma supporting him through his private torments. The Emma that emerges in the pages of Labyrinths is a strong, brilliant woman, who, with her husband’s encouragement, becomes a successful analyst in her own right.

Description du livre HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. État : New. 240 x 159 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The story of Emma and Carl Jung s highly unconventional marriage, their relationship with Freud, and their part in the early years of Psychoanalysis. Emma Jung was clever, ambitious and immensely wealthy, one of the richest heiresses in Switzerland when, aged seventeen, she met and fell in love with Carl Jung, a handsome, penniless medical student. Determined to share his adventurous life, and to continue her own studies, she was too young to understand Carl s complex personality or conceive the dramas that lay ahead. Labyrinths tells the story of the Jungs unconventional marriage, their friendship and, following publication of Jung s The Psychology of the Unconscious, subsequent rift with Freud. It traces Jung s development of word association, notions of the archetype, the collective unconscious, the concepts of extraversion and introversion and the role played by both Carl and Emma in the early development of the scandalous new Psychoanalysis movement. In its many twists and turns, the Jung marriage was indeed labyrinthine and Emma was forced to fight with everything she had to come to terms with Carl s brilliant, complex character and to keep her husband close to her.His belief in polygamy led to many extra-marital affairs including a menage a trois with a former patient Toni Wolff that lasted some thirty years. But the marriage endured and Emma realised her ambition to become a noted analyst in her own right. N° de réf. du libraire AA89780007510665
