Other works

These are works by Klein that are not included in her four main publications (Volumes 1 to 4 of The Writings of Melanie Klein).

Klein, M.  Autobiography. 

  • Two versions of Melanie Klein’s autobiography are available from the Downloadable papers section of the website. One, annotated and transcribed by Janet Sayers and published in 2013, brings together 10 typed ‘fragments’ from Klein’s archive. This version complements another, more complete autobiography, transcribed by Robert Hinshelwood from what seems to be Klein’s final compilation of her notes. These were found in the archives of Roger Money-Kyrle and published in 2016.
