Too Long a Child: The Mother-daughter Dyad

Herman, Nini

IBSN: 9781853430671 Categories: ,


From Persephone to Sylvia Plath the mother–daughter relationship has been central to every woman′s life. Using her wide experience as a psychotherapist, Nini Herman traces the struggle of mothers and daughters to free themselves from each other – to recognise each other as separate. Where they succeed, their relationship can be a source of enduring strength; when they fail, it can lead to frustration, madness and even suicide.
