To Karl Kerenyi
Dear Professor Kerenyi, 26 July 1940
Many thanks for kindly sending me your MS “Kore.”
I have read your brilliant account of the Kore figure with the greatest interest.
When you say that an ethnologist can scarcely imagine with what feelings a classical philologist will read his material, I can say the same of the psychologist who is permitted to enjoy this lively object-lesson concerning a figure which so often crops up in his practice.
Were I not so busy at present with urgent work I could hardly resist the temptation to add a psychological commentary.
I don’t know what you intend to do with this essay.
Will you have it published soon, or will it be some time before it goes to the printer?
In the latter case I would consider whether it would be possible to say something suitable, provided that such a suggestion is acceptable to you.
I am keeping your essay a while longer.
But if you want it back I can send it to you at any time.
