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.
Lawrence M. Ginsburg is a retired lawyer with an interest in psychoanalytically-informed scholarship. He is the author or coauthor of thirty such contributions which have been published in North America, Europe and Israel. Several appear in French, German and Hebrew translations.
