When a disturbed young Russian man came to Freud for treatment, the analysis of his childhood neurosesmost notably a dream about wolves outside his bedroom windoweventually revealed a deep-seated trauma. It took more than four years to treat him, and The Wolfman became one of Freud's most famous cases. This volume also contains the case histories of a boy's fear of horses and the Ratman's violent fear of rats, as well as the essay Some Character Types, in which Freud draws on the work of Shakespeare, Ibsen, and Nietzsche to demonstrate different kinds of resistance to therapy. Above all, the case histories show us Freud at work, in his own words.
