On not being able to paint by Marion Milner( Book )

86 editions published between 1950 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milner’s great study, first published in 1950, discusses the nature of creativity and those forces which prevent its expression. In focusing on her own beginner’s efforts to draw and paint, she analyses not the mysterious and elusive ability of the genius but – as the title suggests – the all too common and distressing situation of ‘not being able’ to create
The hands of the living god; an account of a psycho-analytic treatment by Marion Milner( Book )

31 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At once autobiographical and psychoanalytic, The Hands of the Living God, first published in 1969, provides a detailed case study of Susan who, during a 20-year long treatment, spontaneously discovers the capacity to do doodle drawings. An important focus of the book is the drawings themselves, 150 of which are reproduced in the text, and their deep unconscious perception of the battle between sanity and madness. It is these drawings, linked with Milner's sensitive and lucid record of the therapeutic encounter, that give the book its unique and compelling interest. With a new introduction by A

An experiment in leisure by Marion Milner( Book )

18 editions published between 1937 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is it that stops people from knowing what they want? How often do we wonder where we are going and what our world is all about?Written in 1936 as a companion piece to A Life of One's Own, €An Experiment in Leisure further charts Marion Milner's illuminating and rewarding investigation into how we lead our lives. Instead of drawing on her daily diary, she turns to memory images - images not only from her own life but also from books, mythology, travel and religion that seem to point to a suspension of ordinary, everyday awareness. From this condition of emptiness springs an increasing
Eternity's sunrise : a way of keeping a diary by Marion Milner( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following on from A Life of One's Own and An Experiment in Leisure, Eternity's Sunrise explores Marion Milner's way of keeping a diary. Recording small private moments, she builds up a store of 'bead memories.' A carved duck, a sprig of asphodel, moments captured in her travels in Greece, Kashmir and Israel, circus clowns, a painting - each makes up a 'bead' that has a warmth or glow which comes in response to asking the simple question: What is the most important thing that happened yesterday? From these beads - sacred, horrific, profane

Milner's final text, Bothered by Alligators, came about when, in her nineties, she unexpectedly came across a diary she had kept during the early years of her son's life, recording his conversations and play between the ages of two and nine. With it was a storybook written and illustrated by him when he was about seven years old. Whilst working on the material, Milner gradually realised that both diary and storybook were provoking questions she realised had scarcely been asked, let alone answered in her own analysis. Through her memories, her notebooks and by interpreting her own previously di
