The archetypal couple offers an entirely novel view on couple relationships. Introducing archetypal characters to the relationship between the sexes; providing new and untapped dimensions for understanding and exploring the life cycle of this intense human bond. The Archetypal Couple by Tamar Kron, presents a unique weaving together of two parallel narratives. The first narrative consists of the author”s experiences as a therapist for couples during the therapeutic process. The second narrative is an exploration of stories drawn from the Old Testament and Greek mythology: Cupid and Psyche; Jacob, Rachel and Leah; Pygmalion and Galatea; Aphrodite and Hephaestus; Michal, David and Jonathan, among others. The central themes of which are love and the relationship between the sexes. Each account of the couples seen in therapy brings to life a biblical or mythological tale that illuminates and amplifies a deeper understanding of what both binds and separates men and women. The book presents an illustration of how universal myths exist in our everyday lives, our contacts with others, and our relationships with those closest to us, interweaving the two narratives from a Jungian point of view.
