About this book

C.G. Jung and Literary Theory remedies a significant omission in literary studies by doing for Jung and poststructuralist literary theories what has been achieved for Freud and Lacan. Offering radically new Jungian theories of deconstruction, feminism, the body, sexuality, spirituality, postcolonialism, reader-response, the book also investigates the controversial occult and fascist heritage of Jung. By using the work of Derrida, Kristeva and Irigaray and examining Jungian fiction, this book transforms modern literary theory in ways which simultaneously critique Jung's work.

Reviews

'At last Jung, immensely fruitful Jung, is being connected with contemporary literary theory and writing. About time! Susan Rowland's astute and incisive study bridges all sorts of gaps that needed bridging. And as a plus, she brings all sorts of new insights into two unlikely bedfellows but equally wonderful writers, Doris Lessing and Michèle Roberts.' - Nicole Ward Jouve

'Just as feminist thought made Freud newly useful for a much wider range of thought and literature, Susan Rowland's book is an important step in opening up Jung's thought for gender-aware criticism. It combines a thoughtful and unpolemic account of the misogyny of Jung's theory together with lucid recuperation of the theory to redress the patriarchal constructions of women and to produce a site for feminist theory in the creation of culture.' - Jocelyn Wogan-Browne, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Liverpool
