Doubles in Literature: Subject and Object: Rogers, Robert: A Psychoanalytic Study of the Double in Literature. Detroit: Wayne State University Press, 1970. IX + 192 pp.

Review by:
Bernard C. Meyer, M.D.

In the introduction to a newly translated version of Otto Rank's classic, The Double, editor Harry Tucker, Jr. observes that “in its literary and psychological manifestations [it] has not yet found the sufficiently searching and up-to-date study that it deserves.” One may assume that at the time Tucker was unacquainted with Robert Rogers' book, for in several important respects, this serious and informed work does indeed fulfill the need for a sophisticated approach to a subject which is of interest to scholars of literature and practitioners of psychoanalysis alike.

Rogers brings a degree of competence in both fields and his book is comprehensive in scope and shows depth in perception.
