On revenge

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Following Kohut, the psychoanalytic literature has usually discussed revenge in terms of narcissistic rage evoked in response to narcissistic injury. In this paper, I draw on Bion to present an alternative reading of revenge. This interpretation is illustrated through von Kleist's Michael Kohlhaas and Moore and Lloyd's V for Vendetta.
