In his encyclopedic work, The Discovery of the Unconscious, Henti F. Ellenberger states: At the beginning of the twentieth century, literature began giving subtlerdescriptions of the many facets of human personality, of their interplay, and of the polypsychic structure of the human mind, as seen in the works of Pirandello, Joyce, Italo Svevo, Lenormand, Virginia Woolf, and above all in those of Marcel Proust. (1) One has to add, however, that Virginia Woolf herself was influenced by the scarcely less subtle psychological writings of nineteenth century novelists: Thackeray, Anthony Trollope, George Meredith, Henry James, and others. Sir Leslie Stephen was a close friend of Meredith and James, and, as editor of Cornhill Magazine, published or reviewed all of them; and he edited their biographies for the Dictionary of National Biography. Virginia read Trollope’s Barchester Towers when she was fifteen, and doubtless discussed many such writings with her father. In some respects Virginia was a Freudian before she ever heard of Freud. In Trollope she would encounter themes of unconscious motivation, latent meanings of actions performed unconsciously, and endless analysis of character and human behavior. Various selves or aspects of the self were among Meredith’s concerns, while James dissected interpersonal relationships. Virginia could not have foreseen all of Freud, of course; but she grew up with a dynamic view of character. Virginia’s Early Interest in Dreams Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams was first published in 1900, but I have never read that it was discussed in Virginia’s circles before Leonard read Brill’s first English translation in 1914. One never knows, however, just what was “in the air.” Early Bloomsbury Group discussions of sexual freedom might have been derived from (or blamed on) Freud as much as Moore; but the consensus seems to be that Freud was unheard of, except by Ernest Jones and a few other neurologists, until just prior to World War I – that is, when Freud was first translated into English. For whatever reasons, Virginia began mentioning dreams in an occasional letter as early as 1903. In August the Stephen family were in Salisbury, and Leslie, who had terminal cancer, was chafing to return to London. The four Stephen children were already talking among themselves of a move to Bloomsbury after their father’s death. Virginia wrote to her friend Emma Vaughan: “I dreamt of you last night.We met in London and you said ‘At last the summer is over’ .”(2) Virginia makes no attempt to interpret her dream except to suggest that’s what Emma will say when they meet in London at the end of September. But one may imagine that Virginia unconsciously puts her own wishes into Emma’s mouth, saying in the dream: “At last father’s seemingly interminable illness is over.” She must have felt something of the sort despite her love for him. On October 3, 1903, Virginia wrote to Violet Dickinson that there was little changein Leslie’s condition and that the family were still discussing a move to Bloomsbury: “. I’m in a damned bad temper . We have had endless affectionate sentimental visiting here, at their wits end what to say I suppose, and so saying the wrong thing. Why cant.

Does anyone know the name of the movie documentary about senior citizens starting a chorus? .group?They had a music teacher and they sang old songs and even newer rock songs? It was fabulous and true story. They went all over singing for people. It was funny and poignant.
The documentary is called “Young @ Heart.”Here is the write-up about the movie, taken from the website:The questions start as soon as you know that Young@Heart is about a group of singing senior citizens as they prepare for and then perform a concert with a repertoire consisting of songs by the likes of Coldplay, Sonic Youth, and James Brown. Can this premise, basically a novelty, sustain itself for nearly two hours? Will the director give in to the temptation to make it schmaltzy and sentimental? Will we be laughing at these oldsters, or with them? The answers: yes, no, and a little of both. Directed by British filmmaker Stephen Walker, the 2007 film takes place primarily in Northampton, MA, home to the Young@Heart chorus, whose average age is 80. Most readily admit to preferring classical and musicals to the pop and rock given to them by music director Bob Cilman, and some of the tunes–Sonic Youth’s “Schizophrenia,” Allen Toussaint’s “Yes We Can Can” (once a hit for the Pointer Sisters), and Brown’s “I Got You (I Feel Good)”–prove especially vexing. But the singers’ good natures and determination to master the material over some six weeks of rehearsals carry the day. Most of all, while they thoroughly enjoy themselves, it’s no joke to them, and thus not to us, either. Of course, folks this age are bound to have health issues; indeed, the specter of death hangs over the scene like a banshee, occasionally making itself right at home. But the chorus members’ insistence on carrying on in the wake of tragedy makes for a climactic concert that’s moving and powerful–Fred Knittle, who had withdrawn from the group due to heart issues but whose beautiful bass voice remains intact, returns for this one show to deliver a version of Coldplay’s “Fix You” that will bring a tear to the eye of the most flint-hearted cynic. Mixed in along the way are the group’s “videos” of songs like the Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated” and David Bowie’s “Golden Years”; bonus features include deleted scenes and a brief featurette about Young@Heart’s gig in Los Angeles. –Sam GrahamI hope this is what you are looking for.
