Product Overview

In his new play, Rosa, inspired by C.G. Jung and James Hillman, takes on a millennia of literary tradition and a century of psychoanalytic theory by casting Oedipus in a bold new light, finding the source of his fate not in incest but in the forgotten crime of Oedipus'' father Laius, who abducted and seduced Pelops''s son Chrysippus. He weaves together a number of contemporary issues, including homosexuality, homophobia, transgendering, and same-sex unions. With a Foreword by Susan Rowland (Reader in English and Jungian Studies, the University of Greenwich, UK), and Essays by Christine Downing and Marvin Carlson (Distinguished Professor, The City of New York Graduate Center, New York).
