A Story of Her Own reviews and evaluates existing psychoanalytic theories about the 'female oedipal complex, ' from early theories by Freud to contemporary writings from many theoretical frameworks. Important aspects of the female triangular complex are examined in detail: entry into the triangular phase; dynamics and conflicts of the phase, such as separation from mother, sexuality, competition, and typical defenses; guilt and superego; and the role of the female body. Specific treatment issues related to these experiences are addressed, including gender-related transferences and countertransferences

This book examines the current status of women. It consists of a collection of papers that focus on the political, economic, biologic, cultural, academic and psychological challenges that confront women worldwide. The contributors, from the International Psychoanalytical Association’s United Nations Committee and from a variety of disciplines, draw on their experience to consider how women are symbolized in society today. They offer perspectives on why the status of women and girls has not changed in some areas of the world while in others there has been discrete and noteworthy progress, sometimes followed by reactionary backlash. The book emphasizes how and why women’s status has evolved, stalled or regressed to its present place. In the current era of globalization, new paradigms and the creation of new possibilities are necessary for women to think about their identity, their relationships, and their place in society. The Status of Women offers new perspectives on the broad scope of psychoanalytic theory and practice.

The concept of Heimat with its seemingly pre- or anti-modern connotations of rootedness in a place of origin is central to a critical understanding of German history and culture. Over the course of the past fifteen years, scholars across a range of disciplines have found new ways to examine the changing notions of Heimat – its multifaceted cultural, literary, and visual history, its gendered connotations, and its national and ideological appropriations. This anthology is the first to examine cultural manifestations of Heimat by giving special consideration to issues of memory and space. The contributions to this volume challenge static notions of place often associated with Heimat. Instead, they explore the social and cultural production of places of belonging as they emerge in literary and visual narratives ranging from 1800 to 2000 and beyond. Although the anthology includes historical perspectives on Heimat, its overall objective is not to trace its cultural or literary history, but to place this complex term into new conceptual contexts. Drawing attention to manifestations of Heimat within German literary and cultural studies provides a rich ground for exploring the transformation of locality in trans/national contexts.

"The best book on female sexuality I have ever read. . . . [Hamon] puts Freud's contribution into a new light, demolishing the myth of a solitary thinker surrounded by disciples. A chapter of the history of psychoanalysis is now rewritten." -Russell Grigg

A 'wilful extremist' according to the London Times, Helene Cixous is hailed as one of the most formidable writers and thinkers of our time. From collaborating with the acclaimed performance company Theatre du Soleil, to producing a weighty body of both fiction and non-fiction, Cixous is celebrated for her brilliant contributions to contemporary culture. Acclaimed by luminaries such as Jacques Derrida, her writing has nonetheless been misunderstood and misread to a surprising extent. With the inclusion of Stigmata, one of her greatest works, in the Routledge Classics series, this is about to change. Questions that have long concerned her - the self and the other, autobiographies of writing, sexual difference, literary theory, post-colonial theory, death and life - are explored here and woven into a narrative.

For centuries, poets have looked into the mirror of classical myth to show us the many ways our emotional lives are still reflected in the ancient stories of heroism, hubris, transformation, and loss that myths so eloquently tell. Now, in Gods and Mortals: Modern Poems on Classical Myths, we have the first anthology to gather the great 20th century myth-inspired poems from around the world. "Perhaps it is because the myths echo the structure of our unconscious that every new generation of poets finds them a source of inspiration and self-recognition," says Nina Kossman in her introduction to this marvelous collection. Indeed, from Valery, Yeats, Lawrence, Rilke, Akhmatova, and Auden writing in the first half of the century to such contemporary poets as Lucille Clifton, Derek Walcott, Rita Dove, Wislawa Szymborska, and Mark Strand, the material of Greek myth has elicited a poetry of remarkably high achievement. And by organizing the poems first into broad categories such as "Heroes," "Lovers," "Trespassers," and secondly around particular mythological figures such as Persephone, Orpheus, or Narcissus, readers are treated to a fascinating spectrum of poems on the same subject. For example, the section on Odysseus includes poems by Cavafy, W. S. Merwin, Gregory Corso, Gabriel Zaid, Louise Gluck, Wallace Stevens, and many others. Thus we are allowed to see the familiar Greek hero refracted through the eyes, and sharply varying stylistic approaches, of a wide range of poets from around the world. Here, then, is a collection of extraordinary poems that testifies to--and amply rewards--our ongoing fascination with classical myth.

Zwei Szenen aus Shakespeare, eine heitere und eine tragische, haben mir kŸrzlich den Anla§ zu einer kleinen Problemstellung und Lšsung gegeben. Die heitere ist die der Wahl des Freiers zwischen drei KŠstchen im ÈKaufmann von VenedigÇ. Die schšne und kluge Porzia ist durch den Willen ihres Vaters gebunden, nur den von ihren Bewerbern zum Mann zu nehmen, der von drei ihm vorgelegten KŠstchen das richtige wŠhlt. Die drei KŠstchen sind von Gold, von Silber und von Blei; das richtige ist jenes, welches ihr Bildnis einschlie§t. Zwei Bewerber sind bereits erfolglos abgezogen, sie hatten Gold und Silber gewŠhlt. Bassanio, der Dritte, entscheidet sich fŸr das Blei; er gewinnt damit die Braut, deren Neigung ihm bereits vor der Schicksalsprobe gehšrt hat. Jeder der Freier hatte seine Entscheidung durch eine Rede motiviert, in welcher er das von ihm bevorzugte Metall anpries, wŠhrend er die beiden anderen herabsetzte. Die schwerste Aufgabe war dabei dem glŸcklichen dritten Freier zugefallen; was er zur Verherrlichung des Bleis gegen Gold und Silber sagen kann, ist wenig und klingt gezwungen. StŸnden wir in der psychoanalytischen Praxis vor solcher Rede, so wŸrden wir hinter der unbefriedigenden BegrŸndung geheimgehaltene Motive wittern.
