A Question of Voice in Poetry and Psychoanalysis

Thomas H. Ogden, M.D.

The author discusses the notion of voice as a contribution to the development of a set of ideas and an attendant vocabulary adequate for describing the richness and complexity of language usage in the analytic setting. In a discussion of the sounds, movement, and texture of voice in poems by Robert Frost and Wallace Stevens, the author illustrates ways in which a listener attempts to experience how a speaker creates a voice and brings himself to life through his use of language. The layering of sounds and feelings in voice is discussed in terms of the creation of “oversounds” derived from the experience of analyst and analysand in the jointly constructed unconsciousanalytic third.”
