C. G. Jung understood the anima in a large choice of how yet specially as a multifaceted archetype and as a box of strength. In Anima and Africa: Jungian Essays on Psyche, Land, and Literature, Matthew A. Fike makes use of those rules 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 points resonate in the course of the research and are emphasised within the beginning chapters on Ernest Hemingway, Henry Rider Haggard, and Olive Schreiner. The anima-as-field might be "tapped" simply because the collective subconscious might be reached via nekyia or descent. those procedures are mentioned within the heart chapters on novels by means of Laurens van der publish, 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 gives 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 non-public and collective shadow. It will be crucial examining for lecturers and students of Jungian and post-Jungian experiences, literary reports, and postcolonial reviews, and also will entice analytical psychologists and Jungian psychotherapists in perform and in training.
