The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child. XLIV, 1989: From Protomasochism to Masochism. A Developmental View. Jules Glenn. Pp. 73-86.

Gerard Fountain

This useful article discusses the origins of masochism. Glenn insists that we distinguish proedipal "protomasochism" from the oedipal form. To establish the diagnosis of masochism, the existence at puberty of conscious or unconscious masochistic fantasy must be shown. A case discussion vividly illustrates some of the many possible varieties of defenses, drives, and superego elements that may enter into the final, oedipal, character of the masochism.
