Reading Beckett in the Context of Psychoanalysis: A Literary Bridge between One-Person and Two-Person Psychology

Ian S. Miller, Ph.D.

The present paper constructs a practical conceptual bridge between reading and psychoanalysis across the divide of one- and two-person psychologies. Using literary examples from the writings of Samuel Beckett that correspond to the working through of internalized traumatic experience, the paper links contemporary psychoanalytic concepts including Bion's container<>contained and Bollas' evocative object, with the small grained ‘d’ arrivals embedded within the larger movements of the psychological shuttle between P/S<>D. These clarifications of meaning are discernible both within psychoanalysis and in evocative reading.
