Review by:
Judith Hubback

Edited by:
Andrew Samuels

The central aim of this article is to describe and comment on three particular women who were surrealist painters and writers, in such a way as to throw light on certain features which characterise their aspirations, their inner search and their achievements. The author is, as a Jungian, concerned throughout the article to bring out the central significance of anima and animus projections, images and symbols which the surrealists' lives and work demonstrate so fascinatingly. The early part of the article deals with the rôles that ‘non-creative’ women played in the lives of men surrealists: wives or companions who were protectors, supporters or inspirers, lovers or loved in various ways. But she also touches on the captivation of some surrealist men, in the 1920s and 1930s, by the theme of the murderess, the shadow of the traditional feminine stereotype which (I would add) we now find embodied, in contemporary events, in women terrorists and hi-jackers.

The detailed accounts of the three women focus both on the contents of their paintings and writings and on the Jungian themes they evoke.
