Essays discuss Freud's interest in Shakespeare, his choices for the names of his six children, his love of science, and his ambivalent feelings toward his father
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
Esteemed Freudian scholar and writer Gay assembles eight essays (some never before published) that attempt to plumb the depths of Freud's personal life. Discussions include Freud's preoccupation with whether the Earl of Oxford wrote Shakespeare's plays; an exploration of the names of Freud's six children and what they reveal about his relationship with his own father; Freud's favorite jokes and how they underscore both the anti-Semitic climate and Freud's belief that humor is basically an act of aggression; and a review of the correspondence between Freud and his sister-in-law, who some claim to have been his mistress. The most entertaining essay, by far, is Gay's hilarious review of Freud's Interpretation of Dreams, "discovered" in a 19th-century medical journal. Heavily documented and geared for a professional or academic audience, this mix of frivolity and factual analysis will be enjoyed by Freudian buffs.
