Example text

Anyway, I don’t know, it’s a really interesting issue. CHAPTER 2 TEN BOOKS Being asked to write this piece was for me an honour and strangely exciting. Admittedly, that pleasure was tempered by the realisation that one’s career has to have become somewhat crepuscular before such an invitation is likely to arrive. Another unwanted thought was the worry that perhaps books themselves, not just this particular author, are becoming obsolete. I sometimes think that everyone I know is writing a book, while no one reads them these days – it’s all blogs and tweets, TED lectures and abstracts.

This also happens in literature and poetry. Going back to the Oedipal issue, I think I am a rebellious adolescent who, because of the war and because of my father’s injury – I had a slightly handicapped father – I never really had my Oedipal battle. I got away without the Oedipal battle. One of the things about attachment theory for me is that Bowlby became my father. I shied away from psychoanalysis because it was a bit of a matriarchy. I am not saying this is in any way consciously matriarchal, but the predominant culture in British psychoanalysis is Kleinian.

I think that’s an attachment rage that is saying, ‘Where are you? I need you. ’ From an attachment point of view, if you have come to terms with existential anxiety, you know that there is a good object inside you, so the security is there; you don’t need to rage against the dying of the light. Dylan Thomas is praising this protest against the dying of the light. 20 Autobiographical That’s healthy anger, healthy aggression: why have I got to die, why has my Dad got to leave me/us? ’ From a Buddhist perspective I realise – not that I believe in any literal way in reincarnation – but the knowledge that you have acquired through learning from your mistakes isn’t completely lost; it’s passed on to the next generation in some way.
