"WE retells the myth of Tristan and Iseult, one of the earliest romance tales, and uses it as a reference point to explain the essence and meaning of romantic love. Employing Jungian philosophy, Robert A. Johnson uncovers many of the unconscious beliefs about love shared by both sexes and shows how these attitudes are expressed symbolically in the Tristan myth. lie then breaks down the illusions we often have of love myths in themselves and beautifully redefines what love should and can be. An elegantly constructed, superior inquiry into the psychology of love." -- AKA Booklist
"For admirers of Jungian interpretation, Johnson's WE is a valuable contribution, a companion piece to Erich Neumann's Amor and Psyche, the classic examination of the role love plays in the psychological growth -- if women. If you are unfamiliar with Jungian thought, you will find this book an interesting, clear, and accessible introduction to a model of the mind and culture that can be more personally sustaining than Freud's If you have ever been in love or wished to be, WE is a revealing account of the protound meaning of the experience; it is an exciting map for the journey to greater consciousness."
