Paula Elkisch, Ph.D. was a psychoanalyst specializing in child psychiatry and psychoanalytical analysis of literary works. She published extensively in these fields, contributing articles to magazines, and devised a psychological test for children called "The Scribbling-Projection-Test." She was especially interested in the psychoanalytic importance of children's drawings. She also wrote poetry and prose and translated "Die Natur," a fragment by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe into English. During the 1940s she corresponded with Thomas Mann.
