Drawing the Dream of the Wolves by Whitney Davis
Book DescriptionWhitney Davis argues that an unstudied dimension of FreudOs writingNits visual or graphic dimensionNis crucial to understanding its structure and significance. Drawing the Dream of the Wolves offers a new and challenging reading of FreudOs case study of Serge Pankejeff, the oWolf Man,O on whom Freud conducted a complex psychoanalysis from 1910 to 1914. Much of the analysis revolved around the patientOs childhood dream of wolves and a drawing of this dream made for Freud by PankejeffNand amateur artistsNin the first weeks of the analysis. Davis explores the role of the drawing of the dream in FreudOs interpretation of the patientOs olatent homosexuality,O showing that Freud based his decipherment of the drawingNand, in turn, of the patientOs sexual identityN in part on his own established practices of making and using images to represent the history of persons and their sexuality. During the analysis, Freud interpreted the Wolf ManOs childhood phobiaNand intense fear of wolvesNand his adult neuroses as having been the result of the little boyOs olatent homosexuality.O In fact, both Freud and the Wolf Man apparently used the analysis to reorganize and, as they thought, oovercomeO their latent homosexualities. In addition to investigating this dynamic in the case and the case history, Davis sets it in the wider context of FreudOs evolving theoretical sexology and clinical work, his creation of psychoanalytic institutions, and especially his distinctive imagination of homosexual subjectivity.
