Example text

She reduced her work load and took time to produce a final book, Narrative of a Child Analysis (Klein, 1975, vol. IV). This was a detailed day-by-day description of an analysis of a boy she called Richard, aged 10, which she had undertaken in Pitlochry in Scotland during the war. It was not ideal; she and Richard knew it was limited to four months; the town was small, they met and he heard about her more than she would have liked; and the room she used was not the best. However, she had taken careful notes and there were few enough sessions to make a manageable book.

She felt that Freud was too much interested in the scientific aspects of psychoanalysis and not sufficiently concerned for his patients. Talking about the number of sessions, she was adamant that five times a week was essential. If the patient could not afford it the analyst should reduce his or her fees. Pressed, she said that anything less would be psychotherapy and she could not do it. Here she was making a point to analysts who wanted to reduce the number of hours when she could see no good reason for it: in fact she herself had seen some patients during the war on an irregular basis, and she had seen Paula Heimann less than five times weekly towards the end of her analysis.

The only good mother in the story is a dead one: the live mother is not Cinderella’s beautiful mother at all but is ugly herself and has produced two ugly monsters: her husband is absent and preferred his previous wife (and Cinderella herself). The fairy godmother, like the coach and horses she creates, is good and has her own magic wand, but the price she pays is that she only exists for Cinderella and has no other life at all, certainly no sexual partner. At the end of the story Cinderella openly gets her revenge on her sisters and her mother either by punishing them or by being magnanimous and better than them: the story itself has satisfied, perhaps, an ordinary little girl’s desires for revenge on a sexual mother preferred by her father, with a life and daughters of her own.
