An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria is one of Sigmund Freud’s most influential case studies. Focusing on the psychoanalyst’s investigation into the emotional life of a suicidal 18-year-old, it offers a fascinating insight into his methods of working and interpretation.
Freud’s analysis of the patient, who he refers to as Dora, leads him to uncover a remarkably troubled and conflict-ridden family history. In Hysteria, Richard Appignanesi and Oscar Zarate bring to life this landmark of psychoanalysis, capturing the gripping story of a deeply troubled but fascinating patient. This beautifully drawn guide shows Freud developing his theory of dream interpretation, combining it with his studies of hysteria and sexual development to create one of the most influential and remarkable works of psychoanalysis ever committed to paper.
