On Siblings, Childhood Sibling Loss, and Creativity

George H. Pollock, M.D., Ph.D.

On the battlefields of past activities, where man grappled with many unknowns, slowly re-emerging patterns are apparent. These patterns are “deceptive since [they preserve], beneath a falsely innocent exterior, memories and patterns of former conflicts” and solutions.

—Claude Léavi-Strauss [1955, p. 117].

Writers create worlds for themselves in their books; they tell parables; they offer allegories of the Self. When they express these in the form of fiction or poetry or drama we have the work of a transfiguring imagination which uses symbolic statement and myth to disguise autobiography.

—Leon Edel [1975, p. 279].
