Disenchantment

Saturday 23 July 2005 21:45-22:15 (Radio 3)

By Paddy Cunneen.

An expressionistic interpretation of the life and work of Bruno Bettelheim.

Towards the end of his life, the great psychologist meditates on the story of Hansel and Gretel. He finds uncomfortable parallels between the fairy tale and the facts of his own life. Did Hansel escape unscathed from the witch? Is recovery from abuse ever possible? Is there such a thing as "Happily Ever After"?

Duration:

30 minutes
