Leading a fulfilled and happy life
March 12, 2008
Hosted by Dr. Valerie Anne Kirkgaard
Join Doctor Val, Alan and Tony as they delve into archetypes of literature which reflect our psyches and the art of breaking personality patterns and creating new habits. Using his expertise as both a professor of literature and a therapist of over thirty years, Alan Hunter uncovers evidence of six archetypes that repeatedly appear in specific order in great literature. He clearly lays out each archetype so that the reader can identify which of them (Innocent, Orphan, Pilgrim, Warrior-Lover, Monarch Pair or Magician) he or she might currently embody. Then using examples from classics like Dickens, Shakespeare, James, Conrad and more recently, J.K. Rowlings work, he demonstrates the challenges the protagonists encounter and fascinatingly reveals how we face similar difficult decisions and choices.
