The Primordial Image

African, Afro-American and Caribbean Mythopoetic Text


Ikenna Dieke

Contents: a.) Primordial images such as the Female Mythos, the Quest, the Bildungsroman, the Wise Man, the Dionysian Archetype, the Archetype of Eschatology, and Eros and Psychedelic Experience. b.) For college and university teachers and students. c.) My book is unique because although there have been scattered attempts in the past that focus on some mythic forms in selected African, Afro-American, and Caribbean literary works, little attempt has so far been made either to higlight the interrelationships of these archetypal patterns or subject the texts to the kind of comparative Jungian interpretation attempted in this book.
