Episode 15: In Retrospect, A Shape

Poet Molly Peacock had a relationship with her psychoanalyst for forty years, even after her analyst had a career-ending stroke in 2012. Molly’s new collection, titled The Analyst, is inspired by the relationship she describes as “Oliver Sacksian” in reference to the renowned neurologist who, himself, was a patient for five decades. Is psychotherapy a treatment that must be ended like a course of antibiotics? Molly sits down with John to share her unique experience, and in the epilogue, professor Paul Jaussen discusses the intersection of poetry and psychoanalysis.
