Psychoanalysis is concerned with the vicissitudes of life: loss,
grief, mourning, guilt and also with reparation and creativity,
with death and rebirth, as is the work of Shakespeare. These papers
link the Bard's universe to psychoanalytic thought and practice and
show us how much both worlds have in common. In today's world we
are moved by Shakespeare's plays whose themes are brought to life
with a richness and creativity that has not dimmed with the passing
of time. Echoing Freud's fascination with Shakespeare, Michael
Conran, Peter Hildebrand, Gerald Wooster, and Peter Buckroyd find
much to feast on in King Lear, Twelfth Night, All's Well That Ends
Well, The Tempest, Macbeth, and The Winter's Tale. The interplay of
inner and outer world, inner and outer reality, brings about a rich
tapestry of conflicts, desires, anxieties, challenges and
resolutions that were as true then as they are now. Throughout his
life and reflected in his plays, Shakespeare faced loss and death
repeatedly. That his creativity was not diminished but was enriched
by this, is part of his genius. Loss and the thought not just of
death, but of our own death is something we all have to struggle
with, as do the patients whose conflicts the authors speak
about.Part of the Psychoanalytic Ideas Series.
