  1. Given the subject matter a venerable American poet addressing the universal archetype of The Shadow via his own and other s poetry , I should have loved this book But I didn t Instead I found it disjointed and disappointing In Bly s defense though this book is the product of other people s editing the transcripts of talks he gave, although Bly did have some input The result is a scattered collection of ideas and observations.My first impression of the 1st chapter which alternated Bly s poetry wi [...]


  2. The book discusses our human shadow and how we hide it differently in different situations, among different people It discusses how we were taught to act a certain way while in the company of others or a particular group of people A lot of the poetry had nothing to do with the section at hand, it appeared as if it was just thrown into the section to stretch the book The first chapter, or rather Part I, of the book starts off well, but then it seems to be a lot of rambling until the final chapter [...]


  3. It s like a primer for newcomers to the notion of as Bly says retrieving one s personal shadow It even gives examples of the five steps to doing so Other explanations such as Marie Louise von Franz title Projection and Re collection in Jungian Psychology discussion using the same five steps.Even if this Little Book only gives bits bobs taken from live readings the overall offering is very useful Partly because this subject and the process is a long, drawn out affair Something to live near kind o [...]


  4. This is a great little book that delves in an oddly poetic way about how humans relate with each other Perfect for couples facing the usual difficulties doing that The only drawback, and I m not even taking one star off for that, is that this poet author insists upon including his inscrutable poetry that only makes his book difficult to fathom I ve read the book about a half dozen times over the years, and each time I read it, its various meanings become obvious MUCH obvious when I skip the obtu [...]


  5. People who are passive toward their projected material contribute to the danger of nuclear war, because every bit of energy that we don t actively engage with language or art is floating somewhere in the air above the United States, and Reagan can use it He has a big energy sweeper that pulls it in Page 43


  6. As a perpetual student of Jungian psychology, this book remains my fav when introducingthe concept of the shadow His examples are right on and folks get it.


  7. Helpful and suggestive at times although I found the poetry of the author too obscure to be any sort of aid or supplement to the text However, a few lines quoted of Antono Machado were appreciated Mankind owns four things that are no good at sea rudder, anchor, oars, and the fear of going down Jung himself was never overly consistent and shadow work can seek to become a rigid system that another has said can miss the messiness, the juiciness of life.Yes, a little book but nevertheless does offer [...]


  8. It is a necessary read in order to get an understanding about the shadow self we are all encouraged or often forced to suppress during our infancy.In my case since childhood I was brow beaten into suppressing my natural spontaneity because it displeased others around me It is only now that I am beginning to acknowledge the damage and harm you cause your self practically and in your personal relationships, when you stop developing your authentic self with its yin and yang
