Solitude A Return to the Self by Anthony Storr New York: The Free Press, 1988, xv + 216 pp., $17.95

Review by:
George H. Pollock, M.D., Ph.D.

Anthony Storr, an internationally known psychiatrist, is both a clinician and a writer. Among his various books he has addressed the writings of Jung, human aggression and destructiveness, sexual deviation, psychotherapy, the dynamics of creation, and a recent collection of new and previously published essays entitled Churchill's Black Dog, Kafka's Mice, and Other Phenomena of the Human Mind (1988). In that stimulating volume, Storr discusses Churchill's depression, Kafka's quest for identity, Newton's extraordinary genius and pathology, Jung's psychology and mid-life crisis, the sanity of true genius, and other fascinating topics. Storr treats the famous figures he discusses as case narratives that illustrate theoretical propositions and explanations.

In 1972, Storr published his well known book on The Dynamics of Creation.
