Lecture at 14 Elm
This lecture incorporates ways of understanding from Classical Greek antiquity (Pindar, Hesiod, Aristotle, etc.) and European literature. Sappho’s ‘double female consciousness’ will assist in demythologizing sex/gender cultural ideals, including LGBT identity and its Greek myth antecedents. Jung’s Salome/Elijah motif is considered as well as Shakespeare’s gender specificity and androgynous role-playing via Portia, Rosalind and Viola. Underlying this brief summary is Jung’s premise that psyche is a ‘stronghold of ancestral conservatism,’ yet also ‘a creative factor’… ‘a bold innovator.’
