The source of much of Jung's knowledge was his own mind, and his 'dream' encounters with those figures he called 'the archetypes'. This work gives a full account of these encounters. An intensely mystical journey!

Not really what I expected. Jungs other books are way more informative and easier to read. This is more of a book you dip in and out of.

I have read the Readers Edition and as noted elsewhere it is a very attractively published book which is much easier to handle than the full size book.
I have been reading this book in two ways. Firstly, quietly to myself and the second as part of a reading group where we take it in turns to read sections out aloud. As part of the reading group, I find the material produces a meditative even sacred atmosphere which I value. However when I read it alone, I find large parts of it completely incomprehensible.
This is because there are essentially two styles that the narrative is presented in. In the first, Jung relates his journeys within the unconscious and these have the feel of fantastical dreams, full of archetypes and imagery which are fascinating to read. Then, in his second style of narrative, he presents his thoughts, musings and elaborations on these journeys and these are incomprehensible and extremely difficult to read. Indeed in one part of the book it states that they are deliberately ambiguous in order to promote thought about them. I find this pointless -there are much easier things to read that are thought provoking and a better way of spending time. I don't really like to say that but it feels to me that the sheer incomprehensibility is the elephant in the room that nobody dares mention -we can't criticise the great Jung. However, as mentioned above I have enjoyed reading it as part of a group.

The work itself is iconic ( and perhaps Divine in origin) and no reviewer needed for the content, which would be presumptuous. But the feel, touch, visual glory in this day and fast-food age is to die for, to take to bed for other reasons. It gives daily pleasure simply to see it upon a table and to partake of a daily meal. The price tag is modest for the pleasure it affords
