quotations in addition to the rhetoric and imagery of his writing. He
explores Freud’s personal makes an attempt at analysing literature, the influence
of literary feedback on his method of analysing sufferers, and his
creation of psychoanalytical ‘novels’, quasi-literary fictions fraught
with profoundly own subtexts. Freud’s Literary tradition sheds new

an exceptional impression on our postmodern tradition precisely
because he used to be so deeply rooted in ecu literary culture.
