Lucia Joyce

After setting fire to her room, Lucia Joyce was sent to Zurich to be psychoanalyzed by Jung. She became Jung’s patient in 1934. Jung said Lucia and her father were like two people heading to the bottom of a river, except that he was diving and she was falling. “I am grateful for your letters,” Joyce wrote in 1935 to Harriet Weaver, “but the only ones which enlighten me, even if they are wild, are Lucia’s own.”
