Similarly, C. Lloyd Morgan was mainly concerned with observing how animals learn, though he included some speculations on the relationship of man's and animals' thinking. 28 But though these writers can certainly be identified as the precursors of modem behaviourism, there is nothing in their work which resembles the aversion therapy found in "Barbara of the House of Grebe". It seems rather strange to suggest that Hardy imagined aversion therapy some 50 years before it was first practised; yet I have been unable to trace any written records of similar cases in Hardy's day, nor do specialists in the field of behaviour technology seem to be aware of earlier examples.
Keeping it at a distance". This is reinforced by the description of his passing by silently on the empty road, "with his eye fixed on the most advanced point along the road". The fixity of his look suggests an avoidance rather than a mere lack of awareness of her. He is emphatically keeping her at a distance from his consciousness. Hardy, like Freud, also stresses the precariousness of the internal balance. Though there is no reference to any specific distorted memory of a traumatic experience such as Freud elicited from his patients during analysis, nevertheless Hardy's descriptions of Boldwood's behaviour do suggest that "the ego drew back, as it were, on its first collision with the objectionable instinctual impulse; it debarred the impulse from access to consciousness".
Perhaps the most marked divergence between them lies inJung's very emphatic and repeated insistence on the importance of an understanding of the anima: "The degree of unconsciousness one meets in this connection is astounding. Hence it is practically impossible to get a man who is afraid of his own femininity to understand what is meant by the 40 Thomas Hardy: Psychological Novelist anima. " 51 Hardy does not treat Pierston's failure so seriously. If he had wished to explore the theme in the kind of depth with which Jung treated it, he could have made Pierston into a character who was capable of coming to some understanding of his own anima, who was not simply bewildered and bemused by his own emotions.
