This book I bought on a bit of a whim, finding Freud a bit hard going. But I was interested in Melanie Klein's Object Relations Theory and experience tells me it's always good to find and read the original papers. What I found fascinating was reading the case studies - I didn't always agree with the interpretations, but the raw material I found really interesting.

Love, Guilt and Reparation: And Other Works 1921-1945 (The Writings of Melanie Klein, Volume 1)

This book includes a large selection of Klein's case studies. Using the case studies, Klein shows how her theories can be used with children. Her emphasis on symbol formation as integral to the development of the ego is interesting but difficult to really take on as a valid assumption. Although I don't like much of Klein's theory this book is helpful for students who are trying to see how she applies her work. However, this book doesn't explain the theoretical aspects of Klein's work which is a necessary foundation to understand the case studies included in Love, Guilt and Reparation.

She is a helper 12 May 2008
By H. Handl - Published on
Format: Paperback
Al thought dear M.Klein, regarding her private life story, was quite unhappy and caught between circumstances she could not even dream in her worst nightmares she really gave us a masterpiece. The way of thinking, the way of connecting to patients is easier and her writings are some kind of guide in to this beautifully world of human psyche. To approach someone knowing that he/she is a world of people that he/she loved, hated,related is a reach full experience. So, other words, you get to understand her and thank her for all she did for helping people. It sure helped me.
