Description:
Drawing on the Tristan and Iseult myth, the operas of Wagner, Northern Italian Renaissance painting and sculpture, Dr. Gediman's study is a splendid example of psychoanalysis skillfully applied to literature and art...This well written work breaks new ground. -Joseph Reppen,Editor, Psychoanalytic Books: A Quarterly Journal of Reviews Love and death are prevalent motifs in legend, art, literature, and opera, as well as in the fantasies of most people. In art and life, the love/death archetype transcends culture, time, and geography. This book addresses two kinds of fantasies of love and death, one the passionate wish to die together with a loved one, the other the desire to extend one's life-and loves-after death. Illustrating how these love/death phenomena span a continuum from the normal to the pathological, Helen Gediman delves into the psychoanalytic meanings of these fantasies and motifs, as embedded in the arts, as well as in the human psyche.
