El buen relato: Conversaciones sobre la verdad, la ficción y by J. M. Coetzee, Arabella Kurtz

By J. M. Coetzee, Arabella Kurtz

El fascinante diálogo entre el ganador del Premio Nobel J.M. Coetzee y l. a. psicoanalista Arabella Kurtz sobre l. a. inclinación humana a elaborar historias «Las historias que nos contamos a nosotros mismos puede que no sean ciertas pero es lo único que tenemos. Me interesa l. a. relación que mantenemos con estas historias, sean o no sean ciertas.»

Siguiendo esta premisa, el escritor sudafricano J.M. Coetzee, premio Nobel de Literatura, propuso a l. a. terapeuta Arabella Kurtz dialogar sobre l. a. inclinación humana a elaborar historias. Mientras el escritor trabaja en soledad y se responsabiliza únicamente del relato que cuenta, los angeles terapeuta colabora con el paciente para contar l. a. historia de su vida y así poder destapar l. a. «verdad». Desde ambas perspectivas los autores analizan l. a. psicología person y l. a. colectiva y exploran l. a. capacidad humana de autoexamen en un fascinante diálogo que atrapa al lector desde el primer intercambio de ideas.

En un intento por comprender nuestras historias particulares y nuestro papel en los angeles Historia, Coetzee y Kurtz se sirven de grandes escritores como Cervantes y Dostoievski y de psicoanalistas como Freud y Melanie Klein para ofrecernos una esclarecedora y sorprendente visión de las historias que nos contamos a nosotros mismos.

La crítica ha dicho...
«Coetzee mira el mundo y lo escudriña con su bisturí de sabio.»
El Mundo

«Uno de los mejores premios Nobel de toda l. a. historia. J.M. Coetzee está en los angeles cima del arte narrativo de nuestro tiempo.»

«Un enorme talento literario que no hace concesiones a l. a. fama y las convenciones.»
El País

«Uno de los pocos escritores contemporáneos capaces de cuestionarnos con su escritura quiénes somos y en qué consiste estar vivos.»
Qué leer

«Nadie pone en duda que Coetzee es uno de los grandes narradores de nuestro tiempo, ni cuestiona que si ocupa este lugar de referencia es, entre otras cosas, por l. a. originalidad y el extremado rigor de su pensamiento.»
Enrique Hériz, El Periódico

«El efecto de su imperturbable honestidad y su seriedad artística es l. a. comprensión de l. a. creación de un gran escritor.»
The Telegraph

Example text

By giving detailed attention to these processes in patients, in him or herself, and the interaction between them, the analyst can begin to build up a sense of the way that patients are using their own mind and the analyst’s interpretations. Joseph refers to the way in which the analyst can thus, over time, build up a picture of the patients’ inner worlds. What I wish to focus on is the fact that embedded in Joseph’s understanding of these processes, and the use she makes of this understanding, lies a complex and subtle theory of psychic change.

Joseph then describes a session that took place while the patient’s mother was away. When her father responded to her expression of despair, the patient shouted at him that he didn’t understand, she didn’t have any interests, and the two of them had a row. She did calm down, however, and asked her father where the family would be in a year or so. He explained some of the possibilities to her, including his concern that she should be settled, even though he and her mother might have to move. The patient remarked that she was glad they had had a fight, it was a revelation, usually there is a scene and she behaves as though she can’t do anything about it, but this time her father knew she was creating a drama.

With that patient, whenever a violent or excited interaction was replaced by a calmer and apparently more thoughtful atmosphere, it usually emerged that this was based on compliance and propitiation which is not strengthening, but confirms his despair. This rediscovery of a good internal object serves, in turn, to strengthen her ego,‘the thinking part of her personality’, that leads to further brief movement in the session. When her grandmother asked why she came to analysis four times a week, the patient portrayed herself saying in a rather bland way, ‘Well I have a lot to solve’.
