Jungian archetypes and creative writing

by Ronald L B on Dec 3, 2011

While Chris Vogler's bestseller "Writers Journey" -- one of my favorite books as a creative writer -- offers an excellent introduction to hero journey motifs and Jungian archetypes in literary and film narrative, Booker's earlier work (by three years) is less approachable but a monumental work of scholarship on the Jungian theory as applied to literary and film narrative. This is a brilliant, pioneering work by a major scholar. If you share my passion for all things archetypal and are a creative writer/reader, you can't go wrong with this book.
