Description

In Mousetraps and the Moon, Robert Wilcocks offers a trenchant reappraisal of Freud and the origins of psychoanalysis in the late 19th century. Commenting on Freud's relationship with Wilhelm Fliess and his enthusiasm for the works of Rudyard Kipling, this book goes farther than most contemporary critiques of Freud and calls for a "massive re-evaluation" of his legacy both as a response to human suffering and as an approach to literary criticism.
