Bion: 365 Quotes

By Nicola Abel-Hirsch

This is a book of 365 quotes from the work of the psychoanalyst Wilfred Bion. What he writes is often dense in the way the structure of a poem can be, and the book has the format of a ‘poem a day’ collection – providing a way into his complete work one quote at a time. Alongside commentaries by Nicola Abel-Hirsch are thoughts on Bion’s work drawn from papers by other analysts from the UK, the Americas, and Europe.
