"He was possessed of exceptional literary gifts. There can be no question that he was a great writer: to read him is to be beguiled by him...

About the Author
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was born in Moravia; between the ages of four and eighty-two his home was Vienna; in 1938 Hitler’s invasion of Austria forced him to seek asylum in London where he died. His life was uneventful, but his ideas have shaped not only many specialist disciplines, but the whole intellectual climate of the twentieth century.
