Quotation by Ellen Glasgow

Ellen Glasgow (1873–1945), U.S. novelist. The Woman Within, ch. 21 (1954).

Glasgow, an important Southern novelist, was never a "disciple" of the psychoanalysts Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) or Carl Jung (1875-1961), but lauded "the invigorating effect of this fresh approach to experience." These thinkers were attracting a great deal of attention among artists and intellectuals when Glasgow wrote this.
