Overview

Before her recent death, Cederstrom was a Canadian literary scholar (Brandon U.) specializing in the Jungian analysis of women's writing. Here she answers feminist critics who question her choice of a critical framework that many consider not only patriarchal, but also outmoded. She analyzes texts from each decade of the 20th century, some by well known women and others by women she thinks should be better known both to academics and the general reading public. She explores the persona as masks in the mirror, the shadow as darkness in the depths, becoming men women wanted to marry through the creative or destructive animus, and the self as the end of the journey. The text is double spaced. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
