W. H. Auden’s Uses of Jung’s Typology to Understand Anxiety with Craig Stephenson, Jungian Analyst, New York City 

The English poet W. H. Auden coined the phrase, the Age of Anxiety, to identify the war years 1939-1945. During this time, writing his last book-length poem, The Age of Anxiety, Auden used Jung’s psychological typology to explore the problems of identity and integrity in times of social upheaval. This lecture will examine how Auden employs Jung’s critical psychology of type to understand the effects of anxiety on the individual and collective psyche, as well as the noxious attractions of fascism.
