El mal de Portnoy by Philip Roth

By Philip Roth

Portnoy, mal de [llamado así por Alexander Portnoy (1933- )]: trastorno en el que los impulsos altruistas y morales se experimentan con mucha intensidad, pero se hallan en perpetua guerra con el deseo sexual más extremado y, en ocasiones, perverso. Al respecto cube Spielvogel: «Abundan los actos de exhibicionismo, voyeurismo, fetichismo y autoerotismo, así como el coito oral; no obstante, y como consecuencia de los angeles "moral" del paciente, ni l. a. fantasía ni el acto resultan en una auténtica gratificación sexual, sino en otro tipo de sentimientos, que se imponen a todos los demás: los angeles vergüenza y el temor al castigo, sobre todo en forma de castración» (Spielvogel, O., «El pene confuso», Internationale Zeitschrift für Psychoanalyse, vol. XXIV, p. 909). Spielvogel considera que estos síntomas pueden remontarse a los vínculos que hayan prevalecido en l. a. relación madre-hijo. «Roth es el escritor más valiente de Estados Unidos. Es moralmente valiente, políticamente valiente. Y Portnoy es parte de esa valentía.» Cynthia Ozick
