9780195548679: Patrick White: Fiction and the Unconscious

Based on Jungian ideas about the archetypal patterns of the psyche, this study contests long-held beliefs about the work of Nobel Prize-winning novelist Patrick White--arguing that his fiction is dominated by the workings of his unconscious mind and that its symbolic patterns are those of a mother complex--and offers profound insight into the Australian consciousness.

Review:


"A work of painstaking research over a period of ten years....The result is one of the best studies of Patrick White....Tacey's analysis is illuminating, making comprehensible the impressions and messages that contend with one another within the novels; it is clearly written and cogently argued. Highly recommended for all academic libraries."--Choice
