Wolf Man's Magic Word by Nicolas Abraham

Book Description

An innovative literary analysis of Freud's "Wolf Man." "The Wolf Man's Magic Word" reopens the examination of the "Wolf Man," a Russian emigre who was Freud's patient and who wrote his own memoirs. Nicolas Abraham and Maria Torok's work is at once the account of the Wolf Man's psychological inventions, a reading of his dreams and symptoms, and a critique of basic Freudian notions.
