A place for poetry
A look at the lyrical artistic expression linked to clinical psychoanalysis


In this article I explore the adventure of writing poetry: the genesis of the word, what can lead the poet to write, what literary influences stimulate him and the specific tools which are required in the creative process of the poetic language.

My reflections come from my experience, which has allowed me to look at the poetic creation both from the specific angle of the lyric poetry as well as from a psychoanalytical perspective. I try to explore some bonds and similarities between them so as to highlight the interconnections between the craft of writing and the psychotherapeutic action.
