Would it have KILLED him to include some more examples?
am 20. Mai 1999
Johnson is a brilliant man and a thought-provoking writer, but EXTREMELY abstract. Again and again, I was fascinated but bewildered. If Johnson had given us just a few more examples of how the archetype of Parsifal is reflected in the lives of real men, this book could change lives.
As it was, I was as much frustrated as I was intrigued. If I had not already done a little work with archetypes and psychological rituals, I would have been totally baffled.
Johnson's "Owning Your Own Shadow" is far more comprehensible and valuable, at least to me. Also, his "Inner Work" is almost all practical suggestions for work on oneself, and very good.
