Why do we fear love? Why are we never satisfied? Why do we hurt those close to us? How do we invite betrayal? What can we learn about ourselves from eroticism, abandonment, solitude? What unconscious drives are at work in seduction, jealousy, the desire for power? Is there a connection between love, suffering This provocative look at love and pain asks some hard questions.

One of my all-time favorite reads. I love it so much I added a review on Amazon. I still think it is the only review of this book. Here's the Amazon review: It is no accident that Carotenuto continually refers to poets such as Rilke in his discourse.
He looks to them, and to all creative minds, to elucidate otherwise impenetrable or unspeakable truths about the human condition, and particularly the pain and confusion often associated with love relationships. He does so with astonishing success. Ca One of my all-time favorite reads. Carotenuto himself writes with the impact of poetry. He is able to articulate Jungian concepts in a way that makes sense to the reader on an intuitive, existential level, and not just an academic one.
In chapter after chapter, he explains that the confusion and pain often associated with love relationships -- including betrayal, jealousy, need for power, loss of identity, erotic fantasy -- are born of not merely dysfuntion, but of our longing as human beings for authenticity.
I have found no other book, in literature or psychology, that has come close to providing the same quality of psychic relief. That is not to say that the book offers solutions or self-help wisdom.
It does not. What it says to the reader is: You are not insane; what you are feeling is universal, and moreover, valuable and necessary. For anyone who is in love or has experienced the loss of a love, this book is an invaluable resource-- something that can be turned to for a sense of stillness.
The book is especially geared toward people engaged in creative pursuits who are battling against society's expectation that they adhere to more conventional life paths. Translation: If you are a starving artist, this book is for you too. View 1 comment. Feb 10, David Leroy rated it it was amazing. This is an amazing little gemstone of essays on the inter reltionship between love and pain, from a Jungian perspective.
The essays are short and powerful. I picked this book up for research on character development as a writer. I am so pleased with this book. Jul 23, Anjali Patel rated it it was amazing. This book will blow your mind Gran libro, densissimo e terrazzatissimo. Dall'inizio alla fine.
Capitato di leggerlo al momento giusto non esiste il momento giusto. Nov 11, Laurie rated it really liked it Shelves: psychology. This book is packed with insight into the human condition, especially as it relates to romantic relationships.
I took my time reading it but like so many of the Jungian authors, I will have to come back to this again and again to get the full effect of the wisdom within.
Da Uno dei massimi esperti di psicologia un libro che va letto e meditato. Jun 10, Tracy added it Shelves: theory. Carotenuto is a Jungian, so I like him. His insights into the various stages of love are intuitive and complex. What's not to love! I enjoy that he sees the beauty of fusion, the excitement of it, all that hope. I appreciate, also, that he sees the beauty and pain of betrayal and lost love. He's kind of poetic, I think. He explores the nature of creation and the importance of being unique.
He points out that the strictures of the "collective do real violence to personal uniqueness. Yet, Carotenuto, being Jungian, also sees the possibilities of freedom and creativity. They can be partly located in loneliness. It's there that we can penetrate to the bottom "of something Who'd have thought! May 24, Ian rated it it was amazing.
