Thesis: THE BEAR, THE DOG AND THE ARMADILLO: ANIMALS AS SYMBOLS OF TRAGEDY AND HEALING IN THE WORKS OF JOHN IRVING
Keywords: Armadillo. Dog. Bear. Art and literature. John Irving. Lacandon tribal mythology. Case studies.
Abstract: The theoretical and clinical focus of this thesis is the bi-polar function of animal symbolism; animal imagery carries symbolic perspectives on both psychological trauma and the teleological dimensions of healing. The thesis also reviews Jung's theory of art and literature and their relationship to analytical psychology. It offers interpretations of material from the novels of American writer John Irving and Native American mythologies to illustrate clinical and theoretical hypotheses. It also presents case material for further amplification. 95 pages. 9 illustrations.
