Hysteria: Ideas in Psychoanalysis
Julia Borossa (au)
In the 19th century, hysteriaís sufferers, principally women, exhibited outlandish, changeable symptoms which eluded any physical explanation. Freud was inspired by this spectacle, & psychoanalysis itself became his response to the challenge posed by his hysterical patients. Although hysteria soon started disappearing from consulting rooms & diagnostic manuals, it has since reappeared under different names -- shell shock, eating disorders, multiple personality syndrome. This book shows that the subversive questions that hysteria raised 100 years ago never ceased to resonate with artists & critics who were concerned with the negotiation of power & powerlessness, the nature of desire & fulfillment, the bodily limits of sexual identities.
