Preface

The Melanie Klein Conference on the Oedipus Complex, which took place in September 1987, was organized jointly by Professor J. Sandler of the Psychoanalysis Unit at University College, London, and Mrs. Ruth Riesenberg-Malcolm on behalf of the Melanie Klein Trust. It was considered so successful and the three papers presented there seemed to reflect so well the current developments in modern Kleinian views of the Oedipus complex that the Trust decided to have the papers published.

To bring these current views into context we decided to reprint with them Melanie Klein's paper ‘The Oedipus complex in the light of early anxieties’ (1945). In addition, Dr. Hanna Segal has expanded her introduction which links Klein's paper with the modern work presented here. She also indicates the influence of other post-Kleinian writing, especially that of Bion.
