Format: Paperback
Know yourself, examine yourself - find ways to acknowledge your anger and deal with it in respectful ways - otherwise, it will roil and boil and surface in powerfully unpleasant ways. Last week, here in Calgary, Alta. a recent university psychology graduate stabbed five youth at an end-of-year gathering. Had he dealt with the issues bothering him, would this have happened? The work of MLVF always reminds me that each of us has the capacity for great good - and great harm. Every time I read "a fairy tale" I could relate - and reading like this is a great, thoughtful self-therapy.

HASH(0x995811b0) out of 5 stars Phenomenal look into the darkness Jan. 5 2005
By Timothy Boucher - Published on
Format: Paperback
I love MLVF as an author, first of all. Her work is so concise and to the point, and absolutely eye-opening at all times. She not only sees really clearly, but is especially skilled at helping other people to. This book is one of my favorites that I have read by her. The other one is the one about dreams and death. This book is an exceptionally good look at how evil and the shadow operate and are expressed by the psyche. Also, whether or not you're into fairy tales, this book is still a great resource, in terms of psychology, creativity, mythology and cultural expression.

HASH(0x9959f918) out of 5 stars Very entertaining, somewhat informative Oct. 25 2010
By all4dopamine - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Had this book been titled Jung and Fairy Tales I would have given it five stars. It's wonderfully written and makes use of fairy tales from around the world to make it clear that there are fundamental aspects of our unconscious that we all share. However, I read it hoping to gain a deeper understanding of the shadow's role and was disappointed in that sense. Still, as a general view of a Jungian approach to fairy tales I found this book both academic and accessible. Lastly, I feel I should mention that, while only a minor grievance, there were a number of typos which I always find frustrating in published works.

HASH(0x9957edec) out of 5 stars Two in one deal. Jan. 27 2013
By Daniel Pew - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is in two parts, the first part is shorter and deals with the shadow. The second part deals with evil. I liked the second part much more than the first part. If you are familiar with the author, and like her books, you should like this one. As in the other books of hers that I've read, this one is composed of transcribed lectures and so I find the voice at once relatable and informative. It must've been really something to have actually been at one of her lectures!

HASH(0x995a1cf0) out of 5 stars Von Franz Again April 1 2013
By Alpine Plume - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
No one has a better understanding of Jung and his work and the application of it in every day life work of analysis.

Von Franz truly understands and is able to communicate clearly Jung's theories about the shadow and evil we all must look at and understand.

HASH(0x995a18e8) out of 5 stars Extremely Rich & Challenging Sept. 14 2013
By B. Hynum - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am an intense Jungian & love many of the newer authors, in particular Robert Johnson. Each paragraph is dense with multiple threads & symbols but they are developed tersely in many places somewhat like name dropping. I started the book twice because of the tendency to symbol drop rather than develop. I expect to read this book several times because the material is so important but I will most likely have to do the thread integration myself which may have been the author's objective anyway.
