The Soul of Popular Culture: Looking at Contemporary Heroes, Myths, and Monsters

Synopsis

In The Soul of Popular Culture, leading writers and critics, many of them influenced by the thought of C. G. Jung, draw upon the insights of depth psychology to delve into the meanings of TV programs like Star Trek and Fawlty Towers, movies such as The Piano and The Silence of the Lambs, and other contemporary media, as well as the public preoccupation with such issues as abortion, AIDS, the O. J. Simpson trial, and our enduring fascination with Elvis.
