This paper explains that Robert Johnson's book, "She", is based on a Jungian exploration of myth and archetype. The paper points out that, while some readers may view the book as anti-feminist and completely irrelevant for modern women, Johnson repeatedly indicates that the archetypal male and female elements elucidated by myth do not directly refer to biological characteristics. Rather, each man and each woman can relate to the principles embodied by myths and thus learn something from a deep exploration of mythology. The paper also points out that "She" should always be read in light of Jungian psychology and that the underlying principles of Johnson's book about the female psyche are best appreciated when his writing is viewed symbolically.
