Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis

Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis:
Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis by Rosemary Balsam. 2012, New York: Routledge Reviewed by Arlene Kramer Richards

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But Women’s Bodies in Psychoanalysis has a cover that is a perfect metaphor for the contents within. An old fashioned, actually medieval looking letter O frames a pregnant young woman in medieval dress walking in the belly forward stance and resting one arm on her swollen abdomen. This is the body Balsam is talking about in the book. Her idea that the little girl envies her pregnant mother’s body is developed and illustrated with clinical material throughout. Her homage to Freud and her respect for more modern female psychoanalysts’ ideas are apparent in every chapter.
