International Journal of Psychoanalysis. XXXIX, 1958: Maternal Narcissism and the Oedipus Complex. Henry Harper Hart. Pp. 188-190.

Hart examines the role of maternal narcissism and penis envy in intensifying the male Oedipus complex. Women with these traits overvalue their sons (who represent the mother's penis) and correspondingly undervalue their husbands. The son, unable to identify himself with an adequately esteemed father, fails to achieve satisfactory masculinity for himself.
