This, the latest volume in the Tavistock Clinic Series, is a thoughtful and comprehensive analysis of drama and psychoanalysis, written in the lucid and accessible manner that epitomises the Rustins style. These two well-known authors and psychotherapists explore in depth the extent to which psychoanalysis can illuminate and give fresh perspective to areas of drama, and how far this extends in the other direction. Concentrating on well-known playwrights including Ibsen, Shakespeare,Harold Pinter, this well-researched and fascinating book.

The argument of the book, set out in its introduction and exemplified in its discussion of individual dramatists and plays, is that western drama has represented the central tensions of societies as crises in the relationships of gender and generation, through dramatic explorations of the inner life of families. This is the common theme which links the book's analysis of Medea, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night's Dream amongst others. The value of this book lies in the originality of its analysis of individual plays, and the subtlety with which it brings psychoanalytic and sociological insights together.
