Reviews

In her new translation, Crick (emeritus, German, Univ. Coll., London) gives us the first edition of Freud's magnum opus (1900) with historical context and notes on the theory and practice of translation. While this version lacks the fullness of Freud's intellectual development, it reveals the fundamental work clearly and in context. Serious students can have the best of both worlds by comparing Crick's work with James Strachey's 1953 work (a variorum of all eight editions, considered the "standard") in passages of particular interest. This more literal version, not beholden to the psychoanalytic movement and its defense of Freud as scientist, pays respect to Strachey while "attempting to render Freud's varying registers, listening for latent metaphors as well as his grand elucidatory analogies." Here we come closer to Freud's masterly German, yet, as with Strachey, it reads like good English. Recommended for academic and larger general libraries.ÄE.

is fascinating and endlessly entertaining * John Banville 23/11/2000 *
Joyce Crick's clear, clean and pure re-translation * john Banville The Irish Times 18/11/2000 *
'The link between psychoanalysis and the arts is endlessly fascinating, and there is no better place to start exploring it than Joyce Crick's fresh translation. Crick returns to Freud's original edition - before he added the edifice of sexual symbols (towers and staircases) which have been fodder for a century of shrink-bashers - and sweeps away the archaic technical terms used in James Strachey's standard version. She returns Freud to the lay reader as, above all, a brilliant writer: profound, accessible, elegant, his case histories as compelling as fiction, the conviction of his vision a pleasure and a provocation.' * Financial Times *
