She is described in the Oxford English Dictionary of National Biography as "the greatest influence on British education in the twentieth century". Yet she is virtually unknown in both educational and psychoanalytic circles. When Melanie Klein was threatened with expulsion from the British Psychoanalytic Society she was by far her most powerful advocate and thus played a major role in determining the direction of British psychoanalysis from the 1940s onwards." ;
