For Tuesday, March 14, 2017:
[Carl] Jung believes that poets are in touch with a reality beyond that which the rational mind can perceive; they know that they have discovered the ‘spirits, demons and gods.’ The deepest level of the unconscious, writes Jung, can be discovered only through myth and ritual. He sees myths as necessary interlinks between the human spirit and the natural man. Out of this theory come the archetypes, the expression of the collective unconscious.
