Promotional Information

The Grail Legend is a beautifully sustained application of Jungian theory to a whole story rather than merely to isolated motifs or archetypes. The work is far better researched than many other Jungian studies, and is written with a spritely, charming touch. A delightful volume. -- Robert Segal, University of Lancaster, editor of "Jung on Mythology" and "The Gnostic Jung"

Emma Jungwas a life-long student of Arthurian mythology, and the author of Animus and Anima. Marie-Louise von Franz, who passed away in 1998, made major contributions to Jungian analysis and the study of myth. Her many books include Individuation in Fairy Tales, Number and Time, and Puer Aeternus. She is also coauthor of Man and His Symbols.
