Public Program

Michael Jackson: Puer in the Mirror

Presented by Chris Miller, M.A.

Friday, July 09, 2010; 07:30PM - 09:30PM

At a public memorial for Michael Jackson, actress Brooke Shields paid homage to her friend by quoting from Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince. Perhaps unbeknownst to Shields, this text provided the model of the boy who never matures into manhood in Marie-Louise von Franz’s classic work on the subject, The Problem of the Puer Aeternus. This talk will blend song and spoken word to show how, as the boy-man musician from Neverland Ranch, Jackson embodied both positive and negative aspects of the puer aeternus as well as healthy and unhealthy energies found in the puer’s eternal counterpart, the senex.
