The author analyses the concepts of mental suffering, anger and gratitude in the Psychoanalysis, distinguishing between the theories based on the instincts and the ones focused on the interpersonal relationships. In particular, he studies, on the one side, the ideas of Freud and Melanie Klein, and, on the other, the theories of Winnicott, Kohut, Bion and Bowlby. In the second part of the text, then, he examines some literary representations of mental suffering, anger and gratitude, with other related mental activities, like guilt and reparation. We can notice how the representation of these emotions reflects not only the cultural context in which the authors live, but also some of the deep psychic dynamics analysed by the psychoanalysis
