The Place of Feelings and Emotion in a World of Facts: The Wellsprings of Literary Creation, by Ursula R. Mahlendorf. Columbia, SC: Camden House, 1985

Review by:
Lawrence Edwin Abt, Ph.D.

In the end, everything written is indiscreet.

—H. V. Hofmannsthal

In a carefully orchestrated and nuanced consideration of four 19th-century German Romantic writers and three 20th century novelists, Ursula R. Mahlendorf, a professor of German at the University of California at Santa Barbara, offers the reader a rich psychobiographical feast replete with new insights into the intimate relationships of writers and their novella characters. The book is a textual and psychoanalytic study of the writers and their novellas, and is of particular interest to the present writer because of its chapters on the creative process.
