Percy's fiction and personal life are filled with experiences of melancholy, and various complex and searching responses to it. Not least among these is a concern with the sense of Self, and the Self's relations with others. Psychoanalyst Ralph Beaumont explores some philosophical, psychological, and spiritual paradoxes related to this theme as it is manifest in Percy's third novel, Love in the Ruins. Dr. Beaumont will also raise questions about how these issues may correspond to aspects of Percy's own life and development. Presented by Dr. Ralph Beaumont
