Book Review: Catafalque

Peter Kingsley, Catafalque, Volume 1 & 2.

Catafalque is a biography where Peter Kingsley offers a view of Carl Jung as a mystic and prophet. Kingsley is a pleasure to read. His writing is like music, but after a couple of hundred pages I got tired of the single tune. Catafalque is a meticulous work about Jung, and as such it’s impressive. It’s also a book about Kingsley himself and his relation with Jung. Peter Kingsley writes that Jungians didn’t understand Jung. Kingsley certainly provides an additional perspective.
