The Interpretation of Dreams
|Series:||The\Illustrated Editions Ser.|
This is a magnificent version of Freud's masterwork, presented in a lavish illustrated style. It includes Freud's groundbreaking text plus an introduction and 16 essays by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson. Exquisite art from Dali, Rousseau, Francis Bacon and many other Modernist and Surrealist artists appear throughout. In addition to Freud's groundbreaking text the volume includes an introduction and 16 essays by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, the noted author and former projects director of the Sigmund Freud Archives. Relevant excerpts from such psychoanalytical writers as Carl Jung, Jacques Lacan and Karen Horney illuminate and expand on Freud's theories, and historical images and a detailed biography shine a light on Freud's life and times. Exquisite art from Dali, Rousseau, Francis Bacon and many other artists appear throughout and the book offers readers a unique multilayered experience: Masson's sidebars appear as booklets 'hidden' in the full-spread artwork, while stills from a 1906 film called "Dream of a Rarebit Fiend" are transformed into a 9" X 5" flipbook.
