Review by:
Kaarina Lehtonen

There have been great expectations, awaiting publication of this beautifully edited book. Firstly, because of the personality of Tor-Björn Hägglund, who in many ways has influenced the development of psychoanalysis in Finland. Secondly, this book is a new contribution by Suomen Nuorisopsykoterapiasäätiö (The Finnish Foundation for Adolescent Psychotherapy) of psychoanalytic thought published in Finnish, following on publication of “The Dragon Fight”, the interesting work by Tor-Björn and Vilja Hägglund, which richly uses Kalevala poetry and other Finnish folklore, in a psychoanalytic framework.

To begin with, T.-B. Hägglund is portrayred by Mikael Enckell as firmly anchored in the tradition of psychoanalysis, where the attraction to the unknown is so essential. The choice of T.-B. Hägglund's fields of interest proves this: death, the mysterious inner space, and folklore as an anonym, and collective work of art. Gustav Amnell uses the image of “a Hole in a wall” to describe his friend T.-B. Hägglund, rightly emphasizing the importance of his work, first in child psychiatry, in adult psychiatry and finally, as a really pioneer in adolescent psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in Finland, both theoretically and clinically.

The main part of the book consists of articles by T.-B. Hägglund's friends, both international and Finnish psychoanalysts. Besides these, the book—under the theme of the world of words and tunes—contains two literary articles and a composition of Heikki Piha to a poem by T.-B. Hägglund.

The contents of the psychoanalytic articles cover a rather wide area and to group them together is somewhat arbitrary.
