SANCHEZ-BARRANCO RUIZ, Antonio  and  VALLEJO ORELLANA, Reyes. Melanie Klein a princess who created her own kingdom. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2004, n.91, pp.117-136. ISSN 2340-2733.

Melanie Klein's formulations should not be framed as a mere development of Freudian Psychoanalysis. In fact, they represent a radical change in his methapsychology, the otherwise known, as an untouchable core of the system. Nevertheless, Melanie Klein deserves to have a privileged position among those female psychoanalysts who, in one way or another, contributed with original ideas to the psychology of the unconsciousness. Although, she always considered herself simply as a Freud's follower, she ended up developing her own reign of knowledge.

Keywords : Melanie Klein; Freudian Psychoanalysis; Object relationship; Death Instinct; Schizo-paranoid position; Depressive position; Early Oedipus Complex.
