Helen Luke puts old age into the context it deserves: a time of spiritual clarity, when the flame of life-meaning burns brightest. In a voice that resonates with hard-won wisdom, Luke (an Oxford graduate who studied Jungian thought in Zurich and London) draws from masterworks by Homer, Dante, Shakespeare, and T.S. Eliot to amplify her view that old age is a time, not of endings, but of beginnings. If one learns to anticipate the pitfalls of anger and despair, Luke tells us, old age can become the ultimate journey of freedom and discovery.
