Drawing the Dream of the Wolves

Homosexuality, Interpretation, and Freud's "Wolf Man"

". . . a valuable scholarly addition to any student of Freud or as research material in a library." —HNet, H-CAACA

Davis argues that the visual dimension of Freud's writing is crucial to understanding its structure and significance. He offers a new and challenging reading of Freud's case study of Serge Pankejeff, the "Wolf Man." Much of the analysis revolved around Pankejeff's childhood dream of wolves and a drawing of this dream he made for Freud.
