Abstract

The collected works and letters of Donald Winnicott Volume 1 (1911-39) gathers together early memorabilia, his earliest medical writings and his first complete book, Clinical Notes on the Disorders of Childhood. The volume shows Winnicott the paediatrician at work at the same time as Winnicott the psychoanalyst, feeling his way into a deeper acquaintance with psychoanalysis through his analysis with James Strachey, his training at the British Society and his encounter with Melanie Klein. The volume includes his BPAS membership paper, ‘The Manic Defence’. Some papers written after he became a member show Winnicott deploying Kleinian terminology while moving towards his own account of early development. Volume 1 includes an introduction by Ken Robinson.
