SAMPAIO, Lucia Beatriz Pitanguy  and  BITTENCOURT, Maria Inês Garcia de Freitas. Psychoanalysis and literature: Thomas Ogden and the poetry of Robert Frost. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.2, pp. 71-81. ISSN 2359-0769.

We invite you to dialogue with psychoanalysis and poetry by the reading of Thomas Ogden and Robert Frost. We observe with Ogden, a good reader of Bion, Winnicott, and Frost, the instrumentalization of the thinking apparatus with forms created in the reading experience from the intersection with the writer's ways of thinking. In Frost, we fished the living sounds of speech, oversounds that reverberate the sound of meaning in the voice of the other that constitutes us. This walk shared with the voice of the other that the immersion in a literary work provides is a cultural experience of aliveness per excellence. Understanding the body as the locus of experience and the voice as a psychic contour, we consider that poetic reveries point to the idea that art, like the truth, is a construction that has as references the experiences of creator and observer - in literature, the duo writer, and reader. Starting from some concepts elaborated by Ogden in the reading of Frost's poems, we emphasize in this article the act of reading as an encounter that opens imaginary portals far beyond the intellectual dimension.

Keywords : psychoanalysis; literature; Ogden; Frost; voice; living speech sounds.
