Review by:
Peter Buckley

Aptly, Jeremy Hazell's edition of Harry Guntrip's papers begins with a quotation from Wordsworth's “Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood,” a stanza that captures the nature of Guntrip's personal and professional quest. Hazell sets the papers in the context of Guntrip's search for self-understanding and persuasively argues that his theory always closely followed his subjective experience.

Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, Guntrip was a Congregational minister, and during this period of his life he experienced severe states of “exhaustion” whenever he was obliged to be in his mother's presence. Following a classical analysis that did little to relieve his symptoms, Guntrip began a training analysis with Fairbairn.
