Book Description

1 Nov 1984 Writings of Melanie Klein

Love, Guilt and Reparation shows the growth of Melanie Klein`s work and ideas between 1921 and 1945.

The earlier papers reveal her intense proccupation with the impact of infant anxieties upon child development. She traces these influences on criminality and childhood psychosis, symbol formation and intellectual inhibition and the early development of conscience. In the final paper on the Oedipus complex, Klein develops her theories of the earliest infant stages of development, extending Freud`s analysis of the Oedipus complex and laying a basis for her own subsequent conceptualising of the paranoid-schizoid position in the first six months of life.

The volume also contains a foreward by Dr Hanna Segal and explanatory notes by the Editorial Board of the Melanie Klein Trust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I was expecting 12 Mar 2013
By Iris
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Melanie Klein a safe therapist for children? 30 April 2009
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars She is a helper 12 May 2008
By H. Handl - Published on Amazon.com
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.
