Product Details


“Although psychoanalytic ideas provide a backdrop, von Unwerth is equally interested in the characters and experiences—contemporary and historical—that informed Freud’s thought . . . Von Unwerth’s unconventional approach is refreshing, and his literary fluency brings vitality to a well-worn subject.” –The New York Times Book Review 

“Delicate, powerful, and full of beauty [with] prose that floats like music. The lives of [Freud and Rilke] make such a powerful story that one wonders why it took so long to hear it. Essential for most libraries and for humanists and scientists alike.” –Library Journal 

“A thoughtful riff . . . An interesting disquisition on a small moment that would loom large in Freud’s imagination.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Unwerthproffers biographical interpretations of Freud’s theories on love, attachment, narcissism, grief and mourning, in an accessible, intriguing and daringly speculative study of a little-known work by the ‘father of psychoanalysis.’ ” –Publishers Weekly
