The "Wolfman" and Other Cases (Penguin Classics)

The "Wolfman" and Other Cases (Penguin Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a disturbed young Russian man came to Freud for treatment, the analysis of his childhood neuroses—most notably a dream about wolves outside his bedroom window—eventually revealed a deep-seated trauma. It took more than four years to treat him, and "The Wolfman" became one of Freud's most famous cases. This volume also contains the case histories of a boy's fear of horses and the Ratman's violent fear of rats, as well as the essay "Some Character Types," in which Freud draws on the work of Shakespeare, Ibsen, and Nietzsche to demonstrate different kinds of resistance to therapy. Above all, the case histories show us Freud at work, in his own words.

Book News Annotation:

The short works by Freud offered in this new translation are known by the titles Little Hans, The Ratman, The Wolfman, and Some character types encountered in psychoanalytic work. Huish (formerly German, Lincoln College, Oxford, UK) provides an introduction to her translation; Gillian Beer (English, U. of Cambridge, UK) provides an introduction to the works collected for this volume.

About the Author

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) lived his entire life in Vienna until Hitler's invasion of Austria forced him to seek asylum in London in 1938. The father of psychoanalysis, he exerted a profound influence over the whole intellectual climate of the twentieth century.



Gillian Beer is professor of English literature at Cambridge.



Louise Adey Huish was formerly Montgomery Fellow in German at Lincoln College, Oxford.
