Annotation

Offers an opportunity to see Freud in a fresh light.

Publisher Description

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 over four years to treat him and "The Wolfman" became one of Freud's most famous cases. Alongside the case history of "The Wolfman", this volume also contains the case history of five-year-old little Hans' fear of horses; the "Ratman's" violent fears of rats gnawing into his father and lover; and 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.

Author Biography

Sigmund Freud was born in 1856 and died in exile in London in 1939. As a writer and doctor he remains one of the great voices of the modern era.
