An unexpected and compelling analysis of the ways jealousy hijacks our freedom to love and be loved. There are no simple reasons for jealousy. How can we sustain love when lurking rivals, imaginary or real, threaten to destroy our fragile state of happiness? How can we love freely when jealousy becomes more seductive than love itself? Isolated by the sheer terror of being betrayed sooner or later, the jealous lover hangs in suspense waiting for the bomb to drop. Jealousy, our more common madness, induces extraordinary states of mind and testifies to the complex and hidden distresses buried deep within the psyche. In "Jealousy," renowned psychoanalyst Marcianne Blevis reveals the multiple faces of jealousy and unmasks the unconscious triggers that can prevent its victim from confronting this consuming torment. Divided by case study, each chapter unveils another trait of the jealous lover and deconstructs the origins of suffering, putting an end to the repeated patterns of self-destruction. In this fascinating exploration of a curiously familiar state, Blevis allows us entry into the discerning and surprising analyses of these inevitable jealousies as she frees the jealous prisoner from a cage of passion by restoring the capacity for love.
