Edited with Forewords by Sheila Dickman Zarrow (Calabasa Park, CA)

The Psyche on Stage explores the development of ourunderstanding of the nature of the Self and its relationship tothe ego. Dr. Edinger traces the manifestations of thearchetypes of the tragic hero, the sacred marriage and the search for wholeness, through a close psychological analysis of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure and Romeo and Juliet, and two plays by Sophocles, Oedipus the King and Oedipus at Colonus.

Shakespeare's plays reveal something of the nature of the Self and the process of individuation. Sophocles dramatizes our perilous relationship to archetypal energies and thepossibilities of rebirth to a symbolic life. Together, theyencompass the major themes of analytical psychology. -from the publisher
