Description

Searching out the private man as well as the public figure, this biography follows Henry Murray through his discoveries and triumphs as a pioneer in the field of clinical psychology, as a co-founder of Harvard's Psychological Clinic, the co-inventor of the Thematic Apperception Test, and a biographer of Herman Melville. Murray's fascination with Melville's troubled genius, his wartime experiences in the OSS and his close friendships with Lewis Mumford and Conrad Aiken are employed in this reconstruction of a life. And always, at the heart of this story, Robinson finds Murray's highly erotic and mystical relationship with Christiana Morgan. "Love's Story Told" examines this figure in American intellectual life at mid-century.
