In this classic text on ageing wisely, the renowned Jungian analyst Helen M. Luke reflects on the final journeys described in Homer's Odyssey, Shakespeare's King Lear, and T.S. Eliot's Little Gidding, as well as devoting attention to suffering. In examining some of the great masterpieces of literature produced by writers at the end of their lives, she elucidates the difference between growing old and disintegrating, encouraging the reader to grow emotionally and mentally during the final stage of life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Better to spend a day meditating on a single page of her writing than to read a stack of books on enlightenment.' -- Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and The Planets Within 'Helen Luke is a unique voice that carries beautiful passion, feeling, and clarity. She is clearly one of our most precious national treasures.' -- Helen Pinkola Estes, author of Women Who Run with the Wolves
