Summary (From the publisher):

After his marriage to a psychiatrist nine years his senior, Jouve's work, once marked by the great Christian mystics, became grounded in the Freudian unconscious, site of the conflict between Eros and Thanatos. Hélène is the story of a sixteen-year-old boy's passion for an older woman. Their adventure, unfolding within an atmosphere of myth, culminates in Helene's death in her young lover's arms at the climax of the sexual act.
