Description

“The Cat” is a Romanian fairy tale of some complexity and great charm. It is the story of a princess who at the age of 17 is bewitched–turned into a cat. She must remain in that form until an emperor’s son will come and cut off her head. . . Eventually a simple-minded emperor’s son, searching the earth for fine linen, finds hear and accomplishes the task. How and why this happens is patiently dissected by Dr. von Franz with her characteristic erudition and earthy humor.

One by One she unravels the symbolic threads in this story, from enchantment to beating, the ringing of bells, golden apples, somersaults and witches, etc., and, throughout, the great themes of redemption and the union of opposites, always relating them to both individual and collective psychology.

Originally a lecture series presented ta the Jung Institute in Zurich, this is von Franz at her very best, theoretically lucid, sharply insightful and always grounded in lived experience.
