From the Publisher"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. I strongly recommend Envy and Gratitude Revisited, which, I believe, will make an important contribution in its own right to the advancement of psychoanalytic theory and practice."
"The genius of Melanie Klein’s Envy and Gratitude is felt everywhere in these pages. A nourishing and invigorating presence, it has inspired a group of outstanding contemporary analysts to share with us their insights into envy and gratitude and their expertise in confronting and working through the complex technical problems to which these basic human reactions give rise within the psychoanalytic process.
Their essays throw light on so many varieties of human entanglement and subjective experience that they should reward repeated study by analytic therapists at all levels of experience. Highlighting the interplay of transference and countertransference, the many illustrative case studies included here can only deepen our understanding of love, hate, dependence, omnipotence, sadomasochistic excitement, cruelty, guilt, jealousy, gender identity, separation, loss, and creativity. A most welcome contribution to the vitality of psychoanalysis!"
