YI, Mi-Kyung. The melancholic phallus: a figure of the mother-daughter relationship. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.2, pp. 367-381. ISSN 0101-4838.

According to Freud, the mother-daughter relationship is marked by a never-ending conflict of ambivalence. "Penis envy" plays a central role in this relationship and the phallic claim can be seen as its secret refuge. However, at the very core of the phallic logic, there is the anxiety of loss of the object's love, which is revived with the emergence of adult genital sexuality. The author studies the melancholic aspects which are both deflected and perpetuated by this psychic configuration, in order to remain faithful to the maternal object.

Palavras-chave : penis envy; mother-daughter relationship; ambivalence; female sexuality; anxiety.
