The Psychoanalytic Review. LXXVII, 1990: Uncanny Update and Henry James. Richard A. Hutch. Pp. 375-390.

William D. Jeffrey

Hutch builds upon Freud's paper "The 'Uncanny'" by examining recent discussions of the psychoanalysis of narcissism. He then examines Henry James's The Turn of the Screw. The unnamed governess in the story experiences "derailment of dialogue" with the two children and her vision of ghosts shows them as idealizing and mirroring projections of her narcissistic personality. Hutch argues that in the psychology of the uncanny, an arrest at the secondary narcissistic stage occurs. At the time when the preservation of the self is in jeopardy, one can either regress to a narcissistic developmental arrest or embrace the uncanny in a creative manner.
