FORESTS OF THE NIGHT

on Third Programme

by Thomas Blackburn
Certain difficult experiences can drive the child away from a hostile everyday world, and send him down into the depths of himself. It was Freud who first labelled these depths the Unconscious. But although psychologists have given new names to some of the creatures of this shadowy world, it is still the abode of were-wolf and vampire, the wise witch woman and the talking fish.
Thomas Blackburn describes his childhood journey into these ' forests of the night' and some of the creatures he encountered.
