This work presents a complete history of psychoanalysis from its origins in 19th-century medical science to the end of the 20th century. The origins of psychoanalysis as well as the more immediate influences on Freud are explored, as is the way the discipline he founded has developed and changed.Joseph Schwartz first lays out the late Victorian approaches to mental illness and health and explains the context in which Freud's revolution took place. He traces the evolution of Freud's own thought, then shows how and why the rifts and shifts in the analytic community occurred. He then focuses on Freud's colleagues, rivals, successors and detractors - Jung, Adler, Sullivan, Melanie Klein, Erich Fromm to name a few. For once we see how the different schools and interpretations fit together - how they grew in response to each other, and what separate contributions each pioneer made over the last hundred years to create an effective understanding of the world of human subjective experience.Schwartz probes the relationship between psychoanalysis and the natural sciences, creatively exploring the criticism that psychoanalysisis not a 'legitimate' science and successfully reasserts its importance, not simply as a systematic attempt to describe experience, but to understand it. The real question for humans who suffer mental pain is not whether analysis produces understandings that are 'scientific' - but if they are any good. Whether you are pro- or anti-Freud, you will find this a learned, revelatory, orginal - and humane - book.

Roger Whitlow demonstrates that the negative criticism about the women characters in Ernest Hemingway's fiction is often misguided, perhaps entirely wrong. He argues that most of Hemingway's female characters have strengths that have been consistently overlooked by critics prejudiced by earlier Hemingway criticism or influenced in their evaluations by the male characters with whom Hemingway's women often associate. For example, Catherine Barkley in A Farewell to Arms and Maria in For Whom the Bell Tolls have been uniformly typed passive sex kittens, when, in fact, each is engaged in a serious struggle to retain her mental balance. Whitlow reexamines Hemingway's critically acclaimed bitches such as Brett Ashley and Margot Macomber. He ends his reassessment with a chapter devoted to the minor women in Hemingway's Up in Michigan series and other short stories.

Michael Harlow's poetry has always embodied a dialogue with European literary traditions and his abiding theme, here as in his earlier books, is the search for language to express and convey the strangeness and mystery of the everyday. His use of word, image and rhythm is sophisticated and inventive and though there is a dark strain in this collection, which deals with several deaths, there is also a good deal of humour. There is magic and dream and unlikely stories. The collection is in seven parts defined thematically and including a section of prose poems. The range in form and tone and the easy confidence of Harlow's style make this a particularly rewarding collection.

How does the therapeutic frame help therapists in their practice? The Therapeutic Frame in the Clinical Context examines some of the key issues inherent in the intimate and very often intense therapeutic relationship. It addresses and clarifies perspectives on the creation of a therapeutic environment that is conducive to therapy. The book addresses specific aspects of the therapeutic frame. How does a client feel about unexpectedly meeting her psychotherapist's son or daughter? How does a psychotherapist or counsellor practice within a 'frameless', often intrusive environment, in acute hospital wards? How does a counsellor manage the frame in the face of a life-threatening illness? Using a wealth of examples from clinical practice, The Therapeutic Frame in the Clinical Context examines these issues and more, in a range of settings including the NHS, private practice, and the workplace, and provides valuable guidelines from a range of theoretical perspectives, including Jungian and psychoanalytic.

Hilary Bailey re-invents the history of the Trojan Wars and tells a new story of Cassandra. Legend has it that Cassandra died at the hand of Clytemnestra, but in this novel she escapes to a farm in Thessaly, and writes her own account of the fall of Troy. On a quiet farm in ancient Greece, an aging widow sits down to write her story. Now that the war is over, and has been for years, and her husband has passed away, and her daughter has married and moved on, she believes it is finally safe to write down the truth of who she is: not Iphianissa of Tolos, a Greek, but rather Princess Cassandra, daughter of King Priam, of Troy. Cassandra's story is a retelling of the Trojan War, from the viewpoint of a young girl, sister of Hector and Paris. In her imaginative and vivid novel, Hilary Bailey recounts the tale of the young prophetess whom legend assumed dead: her childhood tutelage by the Oracle at Delphi; her adoration for her handsome older brothers; and, finally, her escape from embattled Troy. Now, ensconced in the Greek countryside under an assumed identity, Cassandra thinks she's safe to tell her story; little does she know, someone from her fraught past has tracked her down, and she discovers that her story is far from over. First published in 1993 and effortlessly weaving together Cassandra's memories of the war with her present life and the secrets she uncovers, Bailey tells the reader a gripping story of war, love, and human sacrifice.

How various mythologies challenge, enable, and inspire women artists and activists across the globe to communicate personal and historical experiences of violence is the central concern of this collection. Beginning with the observation that twentieth- and twenty-first century female writers and artists often use myth to represent their social and artistic struggles, the distinguished international scholars and writers consider mythic fabulations as spaces for contested meanings and resistant readings. The identified resistance of the mythic material to repression-working, as it were, in opposition to another celebrated drive/role of myth, that of containment-makes the use of myth particularly stimulating for twentieth-century and contemporary female artists; and it is an interest in the aesthetic and political consequences of such resistances that animates this book. Exemplifying the diverse types of engagement with myth and femininity, literary criticism, discussions of film and art, artwork, as well as original creative writing, could all be found within the boundaries of this innovative volume. Femininity, myth, and violence are here explored in contexts such as female mythopoiesis in the early twentieth century; the politics of representation in contemporary writing; revision of old myths; and creation of new myths in multicultural female experiences. Keeping the focus on the actual works of art, the editors and contributors offer scholars and teachers an inclusive way to approach literature and the arts that avoids the limits imposed by genre or national and regional boundaries.
