As entertaining as it is illuminating, THE LITERARY ENNEAGRAM offers a fresh version of the standard "Great Books" course, using characters from literature to show the inner dynamics of the nine Enneagram personality types and their variations. This book is: • FOR STUDENTS OF LITERATURE: THE LITERARY ENNEAGRAM offers an exciting new key to Western literature through clarifying the basic psychological patterns of characters in classic and contemporary novels, stories, and plays. • FOR PSYCHOLOGISTS: THE LITERARY ENNEAGRAM demonstrates simply and eloquently that the true basis of human psychological differences lies in inner experience rather than outer behavior. Judith Searle's work validates the Enneagram as a universal template for human psychology by showing how characters created by authors unfamiliar with the Enneagram conform to the character arcs the system predicts. • FOR WRITERS: THE LITERARY ENNEAGRAM offers screenwriters, fiction writers and playwrights a powerful tool for character development, a template for creating character grids, and a basis for devising character-driven plot twists that seem both inevitable and surprising. • FOR ACTORS: THE LITERARY ENNEAGRAM offers guidelines for creating characters that live and breathe on stage and screen as well as on the page. Performers who understand their own Enneagram style can make the "type casting" that is so prevalent in the entertainment industry work for them. • And, FOR READERS OF FICTION: THE LITERARY ENNEAGRAM offers a richer understanding of literary characters and valuable insights into ways their psychology relates to the reader's own personality patterns and relationships with others. THE LITERARY ENNEAGRAM OFFERS A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON SUCH CHARACTERS AS: Peter Pan, Scarlett O'Hara, Scrooge, Madame Bovary, Clarice Starling, Jay Gatsby, Sherlock Holmes, Mrs. Dalloway, Bridget Jones, Othello, King Lear, Lady Macbeth, T.S. Garp, Blanche DuBois, Captain Ahab, Molly Bloom, Walter Mitty, Humbert Humbert, Anna Karenina, Holden Caulfield, Holly Golightly, The Wife of Bath, Hamlet and more...
