By witnessing the struggles of others, we gain pointers, insights, even strategies to address our own difficulties. Tonight we will examine three reports from the trenches, the never-ending wins and losses in the battle to survive, even make sense of one’s life.

We will visit T. S. Eliot’s “J. Alfred Prufrock,” Jon Stallworthy’s “Letter from Berlin,” and Sharon Olds’ “I Go Back to May, 1937,” and learn from them what we can.

(Download a copy of the poems here).

James Hollis, Ph. D., is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst in practice in Washington, D. C. where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington. He is also author of fifteen books translated into nineteen languages.
