A Volume (36) in the series The New Library of Psychoanalysis Published in Association with the Institute of Psycho-Analysis, London
The Dead Mother brings together essays in honor of André Green to explore the theme of his famous paper of the same title. The concept of the "dead mother" refers to the child's process of mourning following maternal depression, when the child experiences the loss of love. Distinguished contributors from a range of fields reflect on this concept and how it contributes to other psychic syndromes. The book also includes an interview with André Green in which he talks about his life and work.
