3.0 out of 5 stars Skip the first part 2 Jan. 2013
By Pablo Lambardi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
James Hillman's essay on the Oedipus myth , and how its dynamics inform the history and theoretical ground of psychotherapy itself, is well worth the purchase. The first part ( Kerenyi 's sketchy overview of the play's later versions ), however, left me puzzled : was it that I didn't understand what the author was driving at, that these random notes were never meant to be published as a corpus, or that the translation is very deficient ? English is not my native language , yet I suspect my own inadequacy is not to blame in this case.
Priting quality leaves much to be desired : the covers became a perfect arch within hours of reading . I strongly dislike meanness of this type in a book which I might otherwise have kept for further reflecting on Hillman's insights.
Would have given it minimum rating had Hillman's brilliancy not persuaded me to overlook the rest. I am ordering Mythic Figures ( Uniform Editions ) in the hope the Oedipus Revisited listed in the table of contents is the same work in a more responsible edition.
