Now she passes on, nut-like, nuggets of advice and homily to nourish her daughter during the dark winter months of her impending bereavement, attempts to assuage her own anguish and that of her daughter with notes of dated instruction. There is a chilling obsessionality about this secret, written, and then scribbled, project. A touching yet dogged attention to fact and detail defends this mother from the pain of her own predicament, but also cuts her off from making the kind of emotional contact with her daughter which might have offered a more sustaining and genuine nourishment in the lonely shadows of life to come.

The model is the infant-mother relationship: the mother’s receptive capacity to think about her baby, unconsciously as well as consciously, her capacity for “reverie” (as Bion put it), enables her to take in communications about which the baby is not yet able to think. In making sense of these communications she becomes the container of the baby’s emotional experience. Thus, she becomes a container of meaning. She enables her baby, in turn, slowly to acquire the internal resources him/herself to think about experience and thereby to engage with its meaning.
