In this chapter, the author talks about writing from an attachment-informed perspective. Writing can be thought of as a "prosthesis", comparable to other "extensions of ourselves", such as fire, action-at-a-distance weaponry, and agriculture. The author provides answer for the following question: To what extent is writing a form of self-analysis, and are there overlaps between the rituals of regular psychoanalytic treatment, the "empty space" of the psychoanalytic session, and the writer's pages? Attachment-informed psychotherapy assumes that most potential psychotherapy clients are burdened by prior adaptations to suboptimal caregiving environments. German Romantic ideas were translated into the Anglophone world—linguistically and geographically—by Coleridge, a comparatively rare example of someone outstanding both as artist and theorist. James Joyce was familiar with the German Romantic tradition through Coleridge. Continuing with therapy/writing parallels, consider his classification, put in the mouth of the protagonist in his only play, Exiles, written while he was also working on Ulysses.
