|About the Book|
This collected volume contains eleven papers dealing with the relationship between Freud s psychoanalysis and the literature of classical modernism (1890-1930). Case studies are used to examine the techniques and modes of representation used to process and re-form the knowledge gained from psychoanalysis. Here attention is also focussed on Freud s own views on literature and literary authorship. Schnitzler, Thomas Mann, Musil and Kafka are among the authors dealt with in the volume.
