A new Book on Literature and Psychology

A new Book on Literature and Psychology by Dr Ruwan M Jayatunge 

Foreword - Between Literature and Psychology

Dr. Ruwan M Jayatunge, a Sri Lankan clinician, has written an extraordinary book linking the Western literary canon (Shakespeare, Dante, Goethe, and Tolstoy among others) with psychiatry, showing how great writers are able to portray psychopathology with unique depths of understanding. More importantly, Dr. Jayatunge introduces Western readers to five Sri Lankan writers, Cumaratunga, Wicramasinghe, Jayathilaka, Navagattegama, and Wediwardena whose grasp of the psychology of human nature is unparalleled. This book should become standard reading in clinical psychology and related mental health disciplines.
