The Haunting Melody. Psychoanalytic Experiences in Life and Music: By Theodor Reik. New York: Farrar, Straus and Young, Inc., 1953. 376 pp.

Review by:
Heinz Kohut

Reik defines the problem he proposes to treat as follows (p. vii): 'What does it mean when some tune … occurs … again and again, so that it becomes a haunting melody?' Ferenczi answered a related question in more specific form: 'I wonder whether there are tone associations that are not determined by verbal contents… A rhythm that corresponds to an affective state is probably sufficient to produce the associative emergence of a tune without text.'
