'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.

'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.
