About the Author

Thomas Ogden, MD, published his debut novel, 'The Parts Left Out', in 2014. He has also published twelve books of essays on the theory and practice of psychoanalysis, and on the writings of Frost, Borges, Kafka, and others. His most recent works of non-fiction include 'The Analyst's Ear and the Critic's Eye: Rethinking Psychoanalysis and Literature'; 'Creative Readings: Essays on Seminal Analytic Works'; 'Rediscovering Psychoanalysis'; and 'This Art of Psychoanalysis: Dreaming Undreamt Dreams and Interrupted Cries. '. His work has been translated into twenty languages. Dr Ogden was awarded the 2012 Sigourney Award for his "contributions to the field of psychoanalysis"; the 2010 Haskell Norman Prize for "outstanding achievement as a psychoanalytic clinician, teacher and theoretician"; and the 2004 'International Journal of Psychoanalysis' Award for "The Most Important Paper of the Year." He practices psychoanalysis in San Francisco, where he teaches both psychoanalysis and creative writing.


'Thomas Ogden belongs to that rare group of psychoanalysts who are also good writers. In this book, he re-creates the vitality of his own dream-life through creative readings of poetry and the unspoken, of fiction and mourning, of analytic sensibility and the aliveness of language. Ogden transforms the relationship between reader and writer into a fruitful and intimate dialogue. One's own reveries, ruminations, daydreams, memories, and - of course - dreams, become part of the conversation with him. One should read this book out loud, chew on it, dream with it.'- Gregorio Kohon, Member, British Psychoanalytical Society'Ogden is not only one of the great analytic writers of our time, he is also one of the great analytic readers. In this book, Ogden offers us (his readers) the opportunity to learn how to creatively and imaginatively read analytic writing - a well as poetry and fiction. More than that - and I think this is closest to his heart- he teaches us how to more richly and creatively read our patients, ourselves, and the unconscious conversations between the two.'- James S. Grotstein, M.D.'The sources of human creativity have always been mysterious. In this brilliant new contribution, Thomas Ogden explores the interface of dreams, reverie, poetry, and play. In so doing, he leads us to new understandings about both creativity and the analytic conversations we have with our patients and ourselves.'- Glen O. Gabbard, M.D.
