Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was the founder of psychoanalysis and one of the most important and influential thinkers of the last 100 years. Anna Freud (1895-1982) was the sixth and final child of Sigmund Freud, and followed her father into the burgeoning profession of psychoanalysis, producing her own ground-breaking research. Nick Somers is the translator

Reviews

"Perfectly collated, ordered, logged; every bit of background thatcould be found has been meticulously researched and impartiallypresented." The Independent "In this remarkable book, Anna also emerges as intelligent, andsometimes both feisty and capable, eschewing, without ever quitesaying so, conventional choices made by so many of hercontemporaries." Literary Review "This compendious volume, expertly translated and annotated,provides a riveting insight into the relations between the twopsychoanalysts in the Freud household - the Professor, himself, andAnna, the daughter he named his Antigone. Here the everyday Freud,the paterfamilias, chides and encourages Anna through what was inher own description a stupid, not reasonable adolescence marked by a fervent overzealousness .Later, they exchange views on congresses and psychoanalysts, aswell as her lecture in Oxford, no disgrace forfamily . Still later, it is Anna who does the caring. Thisexchange of letters and postcards, with ever illuminating notes,has the heft of an intimate biography. I couldn t put itdown."
