Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Freud was fascinated by the mysteries of creativity and the imagination. The groundbreaking works that comprise The Uncanny present some of his most influential explorations of the mind. In these pieces Freud investigates the vivid but seemingly trivial childhood memories that often "screen" deeply uncomfortable desires; the links between literature and daydreaming; and our intensely mixed feelings about things we experience as "uncanny." Also included is Freud's celebrated study of Leonardo Da Vinci-his first exercise in psychobiography.

Book News Annotation:

Contains new translations of five essays written by Freud: "Screen memories," "The creative writer and daydreaming," "Family romances," "Leonardo da Vinci and a memory of his childhood," and "The uncanny." Focusing on the role of childhood fantasy, the essays are a rare attempt by Freud to understand the process of artistic creation.
