Historical Who is Who
1877 - 1962
Poet and writer whose novels explore the challenge for any individual in building an integrated personal identity - a fully harmonious self. Self-realisation was a priority encouraged by his engagement with Jungian ‘individuation’ and subsequent exposure to eastern mystical traditions especially in Indian and Chinese Philosophy. He pursues the theme of search for selfhood in relation to such experiences as monastic calling, incest, and yen for utopia.
