YEATS & JUNG — THE PHASES OF THE MOON

It is known that when Yeats was writing Jung had not yet been published and certainly they never met. Documentary evidence states that Jung never read any of Yeats’ work. Yet these two people, separated by great geographical distance, and their own political upheavals, came up with the same fundamental principals and they both built their own towers around the same time. This resonates as a powerful cinematic motif when combined with symbolic compositional elements and fragmented text. The text is paraphrased from the collected works of Yeats and Jung, not direct dialogue, but snatches of verse and prose, that connect as perceptions of memory, while also pulling the concept of the tower into stark angular relief.
