On Freud's "Mourning and Melancholia"
Leticia Glocer Fiorini, Thierry Bokanowski, Sergio Lewkowicz
International Psychoanalytical Assocation, 2007 - Psychology - 215 pages
Both melancholia and mourning are triggered by the same thing, that is, by loss. The distinction often made is that mourning occurs after the death of a loved one while in melancholia the object of love does not qualify as irretrievably lost.

Ogden, Maria Lucila Pelento, Jean-Michel Quinodoz, Priscilla Roth, Vamik D. Volkan
