Overview

This original book investigates the role played by literature in Sigmund Freud's creation and development of psychoanalysis. Graham Frankland analyzes the whole range of Freud's own texts from a literary-critical perspective, providing a comprehensive reappraisal of his life's work. His study reveals how Freud was deeply rooted in European literary tradition, examining in detail the rhetoric and imagery of his writing, the influence of literary criticism on his approach to analyzing patients and his creation of psychoanalytical "novels," quasi-literary fictions fraught with profoundly personal subtexts.

    Brilliant New Research

    An enlightening and fresh insight into Freud's thinking and development of psychoanalysis. I had long thought Freudian studies had dried up and were going nowhere, but am glad to see there are some quality newcomers in the field.
