3.5 CE hours
Why is the music of the Beatles so enduring? The Beatles revolutionized popular music, creating music of a quality and quantity that had not been achieved before their time and which has not been equaled since. The songs of the Beatles can be understood to hold archetypal meanings which allow them to reverberate with us decades after their composition. We will explore the archetypes expressed in ten Beatles songs, juxtaposing each song with a piece of classical music, many from Richard Wagner’s starkly mythic Ring Cycle, which dramatically illustrate the same archetype. In this way we will see how different styles of music reflect each other, not only across time, but across genres. When we are listening to the Beatles or to opera, we are hearing each in the other. The presentation will include video clips as well as archetypal imagery in slides.
Ronald Schenk, PhD, Jungian analyst, is in private practice in Dallas and Houston, and his interests are in clinical thought, cultural psychology, and post-modernism. He recently performed for the Jung Center in a one-man, multi-media performance/presentation of songs, poems, art slides, and lecture material on the theme of “Liminal Spaces.”
