The Grail itself is an ancient Celtic symbol of plenty as well as a Christian symbol of redemption & eternal life, the chalice that caught the blood of the crucified Christ. The story of the Grail sheds profound light on the search for the supreme value of life, for that which makes life most meaningful. Writing in a clear & readable style, two leading women of the Jungian school of psychology present this legend as a living myth that is profoundly relevant to modern life. We encounter such universal figures as the Fool (the naive young Perceval), the Wise Old Man (the Hermit Gornemanz), the Virgin Maiden (Blancheflor), the Loathly Damsel, & such themes as the Waste Land, the Trinity & the vessel of the Grail. Weaving together narrative & interpretation, the authors show us how the legend reflects not only fundamental human problems but also the dramatic psychic events that form the background of Christian culture. Emma Jung--analyst, writer & wife of psychiatrist C.G. Jung--researched & worked on this book for 30 years, until her death in 1955. Marie-Louise von Franz, also eminent in the field of depth psychology, completed the project.
