    Emma Rauschenbach Jung was one of the wealthiest women in Switzerland and Carl Jung was among the poorest men After her marriage at a young age, Emma provided Carl with an elegant lifestyle and became his colleague She performed analysis, wrote papers and was President of the Psychological Society which sounds like a resort where papers were presented and ideas shared in Zurich What could have been dynamic picture book marriage was marred by Carl s rages and infidelities.The author begins with a compelling scene where the Jung s visit the Freud s for a family dinner After this, The narrative goes back to Emma s and Carl s childhoods and the timeline stays linear, The interesting prose that describes the dinner with the Freud s does not recur You learn of Emma s family s decision that she not be educated, her interest in the legend of the Holy Grail, her wedding , her early married life at the Burgholzli asylum, how she and Carl designed and built their state of the art home flush toilets and electricity , had 5 children, enjoyed family life while copin...

    I like Jennifer Senior s take from the NYT Labyrinths was well received when published in England this summer Yet throughout the first half of the book, no matter how much I squinted, I could not discern why The subject is rich, definitely, and Jungian analysis has a groovy, woo woo sort of appeal But Ms Clay s sourcing is thin She devotes pages of filler to the glorious architecture of Middle Europe sounding uncomfortably close to the sales pitch for a Viking River Cruise and to the menu at the Jungs wedding, and to the wares of the Bahnhofstrasse, and to the costume of the day It all seems a clumsy attempt at trompe l oeil, to give the illusion of depth My l oeil wasn t tromped Hehe I agree Not all is executed well in this book but it was still interesting and reminded me of just how new and strange the ideas of early Freudian and Jungian psychoanalysis were to the Eur...

    I received an uncorrected proof copy of this book from HarperCollins Born in 1882, Emma Rauschenbach was one of the richest heiresses in Switzerland 3 Clever and ambitious, Emma always wanted to study the natural sciences at the University of Zurich, but was discouraged because of her family s desire for her to follow the dictates of Swiss society that decreed that she must prepare for marriage However, her mother did encourage Emma to marry Carl Jung, the son of a poor pastor of the Swiss Protestant Reformed Church 3 Carl was just embarking on a career as a doctor for the insane, which was regarded as the lowest rung in the medical profession It was an odd choice for a wealthy young woman, but Emma was intrigued by her husband s profession and from very early in their marriage assisted him closely with his professional work More than a biography of Emma Jung, this is truly a portrait of a marriage, one that was complex and full of both hardships and love Carl seems to have been a difficult husband Clay describes him...
