‘Dear Stokes’: Letters from Melanie Klein about Writing, Painting and Psychoanalysis

Janet Sayers

The article consists of letters from Melanie Klein (1882-1960) to the writer and painter, Adrian Stokes (1902-72). Spanning nearly 20 years (from 1940 to 1959) these letters concern family and psychoanalytic matters together with Klein's repeated request for the destruction of a portrait of her by William Coldstream, commissioned by Stokes in honour of her 70th birthday on 31 March 1952.
