Envy and Gratitude Revisited

Roth, P. and Lemma, A. (eds.) 1999. New Library of Psychoanalysis, Routledge.

These stimulating essays are evidence that, decades after its publication, Melanie Klein’s Envy and Gratitude is still a rich source of psychoanalytic inspiration. Sixteen analysts, representing a wide range of psychoanalytic thinking, provide new insights and highlight current developments of Klein’s concepts. The clinical and literary material is engaging, illustrating both the effect of theory on practice, and the influence of practice on theoretical development.
