Bygone Lunar Flight: From Mųhammad to Goethe During the Age of Freud

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

The Dream Ladder: A Fairy Tale was indexed in The Letters of Sigmund Freud to Eduard Silberstein, 1871–1881 . . .  It was initially referenced in the August 15, 1877 letter from the 21-year-old to the 7½-months younger Silberstein. . . .

Ginsburg has here compiled a fascinating analysis of an obscure fairy-tale story that the young Freud had read in the original German, complete with an English translation, and a comparison with the original German text.
