Separation-individuation in a cycle of songs: George Crumb's Ancient Voices of Children
Journal/Book: Psychoanalytic Study of the Child. 1987; 42: 531-543.
Abstract: Describes how the early infant-mother dynamics of pre-oedipal development are portrayed in a work of poetry, movement, and music. It is suggested that by the conclusion of G. Crumb's "Ancient Voices of Children: A Cycle of Songs on Texts by Garcia Lorca," the audience has experienced a catharsis of pity and fear by reliving their own separation-individuation cycles.
