Escape into Life: Issue no. 10

Carl Jung's Red Book has been infinitely fascinating to me ever since I read an article about it in The New York Times magazine, and then received the actual book as a gift for Christmas. In this issue of Escape into Life, our newest writer, Julie Andrijeski, walks us through the first part of the book entitled "Liber Primus".

In Julie's essay, as with every full length essay we publish, I attempt to create a visual context. While nothing could compare to seeing the actual book, I still wanted to capture the spirit. Here are the highlights of this issue:

Journey into the Red Book: Liber Primus . . . Julie breaks down the entire first section of Jung's book, and introduces us to its major themes.

Poetry by santrose . . . The poems of satnrose, a well-known antiquarian bookseller, burst forth with a frantic, myth-infused poetic language.

How the Murder of a Poet Has Become a Hero in Hungary . . . Foreign correspondent and poet, Thomas Ország-Land, tells the chilling tale of the Holocaust poet, Miklós Radnóti, with his own translations of Radnóti's poetry.

The Importance of Living by Lin Yutang . . . Escape into Life's seasoned book reviewer, Gretta Barclay, takes a look at one of the 20th century's spiritual classics.

What is Escape into Life?

EIL is a publication based on the concept of citizen journalism. The goal is to create a journal of poetry, essays, and art from writers who are already publishing on the Web and who would like to gain more exposure to their blogs. The artists we feature are the very best we can find, and the writers have a background in writing and a passion for the arts.
