Published originally in 1976, this work has become a classic retelling of Jung’s life and work by one of his most dedicated followers and intimate friends. Now back in print, this work deserves to occupy a place of importance in every Jungian library. It is a warm biographical account filled with anecdotes and made vibrantly alive by the wit and personality of a person who was herself transformed by Jung’s spirit and analytic methods.
Barbara Hannah, a painter and the daughter of an English Bishop, arrived in Zürich at a time when Jung was beginning his major life’s work. She outlived him by some twenty years, teaching at the Jung Institute in Zürich.
