Fault lines, character, countertransfer





`titrebFault lines, character, countertransference`/titrebWith reference to Nancy Huston’s novel Fault Lines, the author sets out to demonstrate the economic value of a ‘character neurosis’ as understood by Marty, and she then distinguishes in the anal sadistic line, principal source of ‘character’, between what belongs to a predominantly neurotic process and what resembles a borderline state, in the mode of ‘primary anality’ (Green). Drawing on some clinical examples, the author forms the hypothesis that feelings in the analyst and manifestations in the countertransference differ in these two cases.
