Freud as a Novelist
[ send me this paper ]
A 12 page paper which discusses the concept of Freud's work reading like a novel. The works of Freud's that are used to illustrate this are his studies involving "Rat Man" (Ernst Lanzer) and "Dora" (Ida Bauer). Freud was incredibly opinionated and in his case studies he often put in his own words, rather than the words of the subject, attempting to focus the text on one aspect or another of the study. In doing so, in light of the unique characters he studied, much of his case studies seemed to read like novels. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
