Journeys in Psychoanalysis: The Selected Works of Elizabeth Spillius

Spillius, E. 2015. Routledge.

This collection traces the arc of Elizabeth Spillius’ six-decade career, from anthropology and entering psychoanalysis ‘almost by accident’, to becoming one of the leading scholars of Melanie Klein. The papers collected here are a testament to the intellect and compassion that Spillius brought to her work, whilst also mapping the development of Klein’s thought and drawing on the writer’s own experiences with patients. Each is written so as to clearly convey difficult concepts to psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and the general reader.
