Persona is a brooding study of personal disintegration, as Elizabeth, an actress recovering from a severe emotional breakdown, is cared for by Alma, her apparently well-balanced and extrovert nurse. Slowly the barriers that separate and define the two women crumble, and their relationship turns into a bewildering reversal and substitution of their respective identities. Shame pitches Jan and Eva, husband and wife and both professional musicians, into a world torn apart by civil war. Completely brutalised by the progressive breakdown of all civilised standards of behaviour, Jan and Eva's fate reflects how superficial culture, good order and morality are when set against the unconcern of an arbitrary and amoral universe.

This reading of Byron's "Don Juan" focuses on the perceptions which form the poem itself through Byron's use of a "persona" in it. The poet's artistic method is seen as direct reflection of the human desire for ascendancy over forces inimical to the apparent preservation of life through either appetite, eroticism or idealism as a counterforce to fear. Byron as "persona"-poet mirrors forth his own ironically asserted ascendancy in the figure of his anti-heroic hero Don Juan. The mask is, it would appear, the reality.

Shame and the Origins of Self Esteem

that the persona normally only begins to develop in puberty (1971: 57). If a child

Shame is one of our most central feelings and a universal human characteristic. Why do we experience it? For what purpose? How can we cope with excessive feelings of shame? In this elegant exposition informed by many years of helping people to understand feelings of shame, leading Jungian analyst Mario Jacoby provided a comprehensive exploration of the many aspects of shame and showed how it occupies a central place in our emotional experience. Jacoby demonstrated that a lack of self-esteem is often at the root of excessive shame, and as well as providing practical examples of how therapy can help, he drew upon a wealth of historical and cultural scholarship to show how important shame is for us in both its individual and social aspects. This Classic Edition includes a new foreword by Marco Della Chiesa.

This thesis explores the impact of the connected threads of shame, homophobia, and shadow on the psyche of males in Western society who live with homosexual attraction. Through the lens of depth psychology, the study incorporates a self-analysis with a focus on factors and influences affecting the ongoing development and adaptation of the persona. Specific historical and archetypal elements of male homosexuality are also included to broaden the perspective of the research. The study develops and presents a deeper understanding of the persona's complexity as a means and impetus to integrate and present more of one's whole self to the collective society. Using a heuristic research methodology, pertinent literature and observations are integrated with personal life experiences of the author to further his individuation and healing, while creating a finished work that provides some therapeutic benefits for others.

This insightful new book sheds light directly on shame and guilt--interactive aspects of the human condition that are deeply involved in the development and treatment of alcoholism and chemical dependency. Contributors to this valuable book discuss the process of healing internalized shame within the chemically dependent client and among the family members. They explore creative techniqes that foster understanding and coping strategies--videotaping and storytelling with clay and stuffed animals. Professionals who are experienced in treating chemically dependent clients and their families explore shame and the healing of shame, while examining the culture within which both occur. A major focus is the destructiveness of shame and guilt--shame keeps the family from seeking help, erodes self-worth, and produces destructive secrets that cannot heal, and guilt may circulate freely between alcoholic and family members, so that everyone begins to feel responsible for the pain of others.

This is possibly the most entertaining, surprising and enjoyable film book ever written. Thomson set himself the near-foolhardy task of writing one page each on 1000 of the films that he has particularly liked – or in some cases, abhorred. Some half-million words of funny, vigorous, wayward prose later, we are all the happy beneficiaries of his deranged labour. Always unexpected, never repetitive, ‘Have You Seen...?’ can be read consecutively – from Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein to Zabriskie Point – or dipped into over many years, and it is a masterclass in how to write about films and how to love them. Sometimes Thomson will be interested in the director, sometimes in the culture that made such a film possible at such a time, sometimes in the stars (always in the stars, to be honest), and sometimes even in the outrageous cynicism and corruption of most financial backers. ‘Have You Seen...?’ is crammed with great love stories, westerns, musicals, war stories, comedies, and dramas. It is as in awe of film noir as of silent farce, and adores Hollywood but also favours British, Japanese and European cinema: camp disasters, kitsch and pretention hold no fears. If Thomson has a bottom line it is his incredulity that so much that is so enjoyable and moving and worthwhile was ever made at all – and that thanks to DVD we can now watch it forever. ‘Have You Seen...?’ will redirect how you spend your evenings for the rest of your life – for the better.

The syndrome of shame refers to the inner doubts and self-incriminations that prevent some individuals from living harmoniously and confidently. The fear of shame can lead to a lifetime of secrecy and cover-up of one's true feelings. In this book, Carl Goldberg provides a guide for dealing with the conditions that cause shame. He indicates the necessary steps for identifying and constructively using the sensitive feelings of shame to enable patients to foster a more satisfying and meaningful existence.
