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

Edited by Mary Lynn Kittelson

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.

"Reading this book is like taking your smartest friend to the movies. Images of Elvis, Mr. Spock, and Miss America are backlit by lively insights of alchemy, folklore, and world mythology."
—Nor Hall
Author of Those Women

“In this book writers and critics draw upon insights of psychology to delve into the hidden meanings of TV programs, movies and other contemporary media as well as the public preoccupation with such issues as abortion, AIDS and the O.J. Simpson trial.”
