Lady Macbeth: On the Couch: Inside the Mind and Life of Lady Macbeth

 
9781610880947: Lady Macbeth: On the Couch: Inside the Mind and Life of Lady Macbeth

Scholars, professors, and historians have wondered for centuries how and why Lady Macbeth, the beautiful, beloved wife of a nobleman, had to encourage--nay, push--her husband, Prince Macbeth, to commit the ghastly crime of killing the king.

The great Sigmund Freud himself said that nobody knows why the Lady did so. Dr. Alma Bond spent many years searching for the reason.

Read Lady Macbeth: On the Couch to learn the answer to this ancient mystery, and to get a fascinating, first-hand look at life more than a millennium ago.

Dr. Alma H. Bond is the author of twenty published books, including this one. Among her others: Jackie O: On the Couch; Michelle Obama: A Biography; The Autobiography of Maria Callas; Margaret Mahler: A Biography of the Psychoanalyst; Camille Claude: A Novel; America's First Woman Warrior: The Story of Deborah Sampson; and Who Killed Virginia Woolf? A Psychobiography.

She received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Columbia University, graduated from the post-doctoral program in psychoanalysis at the Freudian Society, and was a psychoanalyst in private practice for 37 years in New York City. She ''retired'' to become a full-time writer, but now maintains a small practice in addition to writing. Dr. Bond is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the Dramatists Guild, and the Authors Guild, as well as a fellow and faculty member of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, the International Psychoanalytic Association, and the American Psychological Association. She became one of the first non-medical analysts to be elected to the International Psychoanalytic Association.

Dr. Bond grew up in Philadelphia, where she obtained her undergraduate degree in psychology from Temple University, and following voluntary military service, moved to New York.

A longtime resident of New York City, she lived for nearly a dozen years in south Florida, and now resides in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Review:

Lady Macbeth: On the Couch truly gets inside her mind and reinvents the famous Shakespeare character. --Cassandra Langer, Ph.D., bestselling biographer and art historian

Find out the truth that changed history from the source herself in Lady Macbeth: On the Couch. --Dr. Janet Brill, bestselling author of Cholesterol/Down (Random House)

Fans of Shakespeare should be advised that Lady Macbeth: On the Couch is very much its own story. It is not Shakespeare's Macbeth told from Lady Macbeth's point of view. Instead, it is what literature lovers enjoy the most--an intelligent treatment of the possible life of one the most infamous, mysterious female characters in all of literature. I plan to purchase Lady Macbeth: On the Couch, as it will complement my 12th grade AP English Literature curriculum. This novel will actually serve as a great teaching companion to the play, as it is a wonderful example of the power of characterization in writing. If only I could afford an entire class set of this novel! --Renee Fletcher, English teacher, Fitzgerald High School, Warren, MI
