After Mitch Walker completed his pioneering Jungian paper on the Double archetype and homosexuality in 1976, he became interested in extending that analysis to further literary and mythological examples, and so turned to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, which had so inspired him while accidentally viewing the Christopher Isherwood TV version in late 1974. Upon carefully reading the novel, Mitch discovered a rich allegorical motif concerning sacred homosexual love, vicious cultural bigotry and the key importance of self-acceptance that resonates strongly today. In tonight's talk, Mitch will read this early gay-centered Jungian analysis of a serious literary work, and comment on its context, particulars and contemporary relevance, followed by a lively discussion with the audience.
