The repetition compulsion, envy, and the death instinct

By John Steiner

Abstract

These stimulating essays are evidence that 50 years after its publication Melanie Klein's "Envy and Gratitude" is still a rich source of psychoanalytic inspiration. Sixteen highly regarded analysts, representing a wide range of psychoanalytic thinking, provide new insights and highlight current developments without avoiding the controversies that surround the original publication. The clinical and literary material is engaging and illustrates the effect of theory on practice and the influence of practice on the evolution of theory
