Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
By ``wedding'' Leonard means not only union with a human lover but also union with God and the integration of our work with our life. To bring about any or all of these unions we must overcome various obstacles presented by our psyches. Leonard uses dreams, fairy tales, poems, life stories, and especially the writings of Rainer Maria Rilke to illustrate what these obstacles are and how to deal with them. An example of Jungian psychology at work, On the Way to the Wedding is a free-flowing book, short on organization, that nevertheless presents the general reader with a number of important psychological insights about the integration of life's opposites. John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York
