Archytypal Patterns in Fairytales, no 2
The title of this short course is borrowed from a book by Marie Louise Von Franz who was the acknowledged expert on the interpretation of fairy tales from a Jungian perspective. She describes archetypal patterns thus:
“Fairy tales represent something very removed from human consciousness...the difficulty (to understand them) is due to the fact that the fairytale is based on certain functions of the psyche with the skin and flesh removed. Only that remains which is of general human interest.”
In this second round of Fairytales we will examine two more stories to analyse andunderstand what they tell us about the play of the archetypes and individuation. Participants will be sent copies of the specific fairytales prior to the start of the course.
Recommended reading: "The Interpretation of Fairy Tales", Marie-Louise von Franz (1996)
