“Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams appeared in eight editions between 1899 and 1930. Here, Mayer and Marinelli track textual changes in relation to psychoanalytic practice, arguing that discursive and social formations have mutual influences that can be identified. This pioneering bibliographic and historical effort shows how Freud’s original text preceded a methodology of dream interpretation, which, in the middle phase, incorporated, myth and literature in a lexicon of symbols, ending with canonization of the text.”
