The Unknown Freud: Five Plays and Five Essays by Robert L. Lippman

35.00

Although he died over three-quarters of a century ago, Sigmund Freud continues to elude both his biographers and his critics. Based on over three decades of research, this book of plays and essays offers a look at the father of psychoanalysis not rendered before. Since prose is unable to convey, or do justice to, his fabulous secret life, the plays take center stage, capturing Freud the man with his aspirations, superstitions, identifications, thoughts, sorrows, feelings, and innately religious disposition.

“A fascinating psychobiographic interweaving of Freud—the creator of psychoanalysis and secular Jew—in an anti-analytic, anti-Semitic society. We walk, talk, and playfully debate with Freud and the author on science and art, the unconscious and culture.”

—Harold P. Blum, MD, Executive Director, Emeritus, The Sigmund Freud Archives, Former Editor, The Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association.

My deep engrossment in the Bible story (almost as soon as I had learned the art of reading) had, as I recognized much later, an enduring effect upon the direction of my interest.

—Sigmund Freud, An Autobiographical Study.
