Mademoiselle de Scudéry and the Looking-Glass Self


Joanne Davis

As a thought provoking and challenging study, this book analyzes twentieth-century archetypal works fostered mainly by Jung as they enrich and vitalize the novels of Mademoiselle de Scudéry, a seventeenth-century French writer. The focal area of comparison includes symbolic expression of man's spiritual experience, the looking-glass self concept as a literary and psychological vehicle, and the growth and development of the individual as portrayed in mirror images.
