"Envy and Gratitude and Other Works 1946-1963" is a perfect introduction to Melanie Klein’s modern neuroscientific research.
Melanie Klein's writings, particularly on infant development and psychosis, have been crucial both to theoretical work and to clinical practice. "Envy and Gratitude" collects her writings from 1946 until her death in 1960, including two papers published posthumously.
The book you are holding in your hands is the first Bulgarian translation of "Envy and Gratitude" by Melanie Klein. The publication of her most important articles in Bulgarian is the result of the long-term cooperation of the initiator of the project, Dr. Svetlozar Vassilev, with the Melanie Klein Trust. It is intended as a supplement to the collection "Contemporary Kleinian Psychoanalysis", which presents the contributions of leading experts from Europe and Great Britain in this field. The editor, the translator and the publishing house of this edition deserve special praise for the effort to make it reach the wide Bulgarian audience.
